David Wiesner Keynote

David Wiesner is following the tough act of Sherman Alexie followed by Lin Oliver telling a few jokes this morning. But superhero illustrators can always get the job done. Lin calls David "the master of creating picture book art."

You won't believe it but, his powerpoint is ALIVE!

David talks about how his idea for TUESDAY came about -- as an assignment for Cricket Magazine. They asked him to do a cover with frogs on it. David turned to his sketchbook and noticed that a frog on a lily pad looks a lot like a UFO.

NOW David is showing us clips from THE SHINING... and how it influenced TUESDAY. No really. He is!
