Speaking of Making is a conversation series about work and the creative process, presented by AIR Serenbe. Join us as we host AIR Serenbe 2017 Little Shop of Stories Focus Fellowship recipient Brendan Wenzel. Little Shop of Stories is awarded to a picture book artist.
Brendan Wenzel is an illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY. His work has appeared internationally in children’s books, animations and magazines. An ardent conservationist, he is a proud collaborator with many organizations working to ensure the future of wild places and threatened species, especially within Southeast Asia.
Brendan’s latest book They All Saw A Cat is the recipient of the 2017 Caldecott Honor, an award given to an artist of the most distinguished picture book for children. The Caldecott Honor is a citation given by the Association for Library Service to Children of the American Library Association (ALA).
