Sophie Blackall July 2015
Bonus fun assignment: the location was not far from my first owned real estate in Brooklyn (If only I had kept it - I could retire now!) The subject, Sophie Blackall, is an Australian artist and illustrator of children's books based in Brooklyn, New York. She won the 2016 Caldecott Medal for Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear and the 2019 Medal for Hello Lighthouse. We had a fun time on this assignment, and I wandered through my old 'hood when we wrapped.
