2014 Tomie de paola Award Contest Entry


This is my entry for the Tomie de paola Award contest. This year we were to develop a character through a series of panels to show character development. Mine is more of a storyline, I guess. It was fun creating it though.

Good luck to the ten finalists who are moving on to the next round. Especially our Houston illustrator, Cheryl Pilgrim. Loved her entry… so clever!



  1. This is so cute Roberta! Great story. Why wasn’t it in the gallery? Thanks for mentioning me in your blog. You’re always been so supportive and helpful as I’ve tried to find my way in the illustration world.

  2. Hi Cheryl,
    I turned my entry into the the Gallery late so I’m not sure if it’ll go in or not.
    Your entry is so cute and your story is so thoughtful. It’s my pleasure to be supportive to such a talented artist and new friend.
    Good luck as you go to the next level in the contest. I think you have a winner!
