I was very honored to receive a 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Illustrators, an award that was also given this year to Alice and Martin Provensen. Alice was a recipient of a Carle Honors Award in 2009. I was delighted to attend the ceremony in New York last week and to see the 30th Annual Exhibition of Original Illustration. And to have a chance to meet some of the award winners at the event.

My editors Ann Beneduce and Pat Gauch were there with me, which made the night even more special.

Here is Anelle Miller, director of the Society of Illustrators introducing me. I hope you will enjoy these photos!
