We are great admirers of the work that happens over at “Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast,” a terrific blog that celebrates the art of children’s books, along with the artists that make them so special.
Recently, Susan Gal was invited to answer Seven Questions over Breakfast, where they enjoyed â€œa fresh-pressed mug of Nobleâ€™s Ethiopian â€˜Workaâ€™ blend coffee with steamed milk and steel-cut oatmeal with seasonal fresh fruit, topped with toasted almonds.â€ Please take a look at this delightful and informative chat while drooling with envy over that lovely spread.

3×3 Magazine recently announced the winners for their Children’s Illustration Annual 9, and we are elated to learn that a few MGIers have been included once again.
“Entries were up this year with over 1,700 entries from 35 countries. Forty-percent of our entries were from outside America, making us a truly international competition. As always there were many fine pieces entered that just missed getting the nod from our judges.”

So let’s get to the artwork, shall we?
First off, we were so happy to learn that Judith Drews’ illustrations for her adorable book “Lily Loves” received a merit award:
Susan Gal’s darling book “Into the Outdoors” had a few pieces selected for the ‘merit’ category, as well:
And last but certainly not least, we learned that Valeria Petrone had 5 of her works accepted into the merit category:
Did we say “merit?” Additionally, Valeria also took home the Bronze medal in the editorial category. How exciting!
Congratulations to all, and thank you for making us look so good!
