Tomie dePaola Illustration Competition

Here is my entry into the SCBWI Tomie dePaola illustration competition, illustrating a passage from the book, The Yearling, a beautiful and sad story written in the 1930s about a boy and a deer in rural Florida. 

I've been wanting to submit to this competition for a while, and I'm excited to have finished the piece!


  1. Such a cute scene! Love the look on the deer's face, and the really cool perspective!

  2. Thanks Mit :D I was excited to finish the piece, and am now on the hunt for more competitions -- the deadline really moved me along!


I love reading your feedback, thanks so much for commenting!
