2012 Illustrators' Day Working Illustrator

I'm thrilled to announce we've nailed down our Working Illustrator for our 2012 Illustrators' Day. It will be R. Gregory Christie! His name may sound familiar because he was just featured in today's SLJ for landing a gig to paint posters for the NY city subway. He's also a multiple (3 times!) Coretta Scott King Honor Award winner for illustration! I read a write-up about him in 7 Impossible Things Before Breakfast the other day and was shocked to discover he lives right here in Georgia. He's even hosting a kickstarter program to open a book store/creative place in North DeKalb Mall. How's that for good luck!?
