Today is legendary storyman/children's book illustrator Bill Peet's birthday! Yesterday at work we had a celebration to honor the man and his work. We brought in originals we owned, pinned up a bunch of his drawings, the Animation Research Library brought over a bunch of his work from Dalmations, Susie the little Blue Couple and Alice in Wonderland and we all toasted the man whose work we admire. The originals were really inspiring to look at! Here's a couple of photos before the event.
Happy Birthday Bill Peet!
