Such a beautiful day for the 17th Annual Harvest Festival yesterday! I had a table of coloring set up to celebrate the publication of my latest project with Pomegranate Kids: FAIRY HOUSE: A Color, Punch Out and Play Set.
The Harvest Festival was started 17 years ago as a reaction of neighborhood parents to the 9-11 disaster. I started to design a print each year, starting the second year of the event, so I guess there are 16 Harvest-y prints floating around. They make the print image into a t-shirt, and then raffle off the print to pay for table rentals and whatnot. Sometimes I contribute by having a table–I did one one year for Crow Made a Friend where kids made nests from paper lunch bags and put little clay birds into them (with pipe cleaner legs and feather wings).
This year I had a fairy and fairy house coloring event, with the Fairy House Play Set set up for potential inspiration.
