Transcript of Caldecott Medal Book Awards

Oil Painting

Printing Techniques
Snowflake Bentley, illustrated by Mary Azarian; text by Jacqueline Briggs Martin
"Mary Azarian, a Vermont artist who loves snow as much as Wilson Bentley, has created strong and skillfully carved woodcuts that portray sensible, sturdy characters and a timeless rural landscape"
Caldecott Medal
Book Awards

"Award-winning artist Ed Young illustrates, with characteristic flair and energy, the ancient Chinese version of the favorite fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood." Young's vibrant, yet delicate, pastels and watercolors add drama to the deftly translated story."

Grandfathers Journey by Allan Say
"Exquisite watercolors portray vast landscapes along with intimate family portraits that communicate hope, dignity, sadness, and love."
Pen and Ink/
Black and White
Rapunzel, retold and illustrated by Paul O. Zelinsky
"Richly detailed oil paintings convey dramatic emotions and feature distinctive architecture, lush landscapes and authentic costuming of Renaissance Italy.

Collage and Cut Paper
Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes "All along I saw the book as a black-and-white book. I’d long wanted to do a book with limited or no color, and for the first time, I’d written a story that seemed just right for this approach"
The House in the Night by Susan Marie Swanson Illustrated by Beth Krommes. "I work in scratchboard for my children’s book illustrations. Scratchboard is a piece of cardboard or panel with a think coating of white, topped with a coating of black. My scratchboard drawings start completely black. I draw white lines by scratching through the black with a sharp scratchboard tool. The more lines I draw, the brighter the picture becomes. My scratchboard pictures are so detailed that I have to look through a magnifying light as I am working. To add color, I photocopy my finished scratchboard pictures and paint with watercolor on the copies."
Pastels and Crayons
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg "The texture comes through with the use of white highlighting and the blending. The use of oil pastels allows for classic highlighting around the edges of objects but also for simple white “dots” inside the colors of the objects that make them realistic instead of flatly pigmented."

ex. Woodcuts

Diaz has not been afraid to take risks in illustrating the story with thickly textured paintings against a background of torn-paper and found-object collage. Without becoming cluttered or gimmicky, these pictures manage to capture a calamitous atmosphere that finally calms. . .

Klassen plays with texture and light in his Chinese ink and digital illustrations to construct layers of meaning. Once again the eyes tell it all so that the dark resolution should be no surprise to attentive readers
