We are so very lucky to have Jason Chin as our guest this month! On Tuesday January 25th 2022, Jason was awarded the Caldecott Medal for the illustrations for the book, Watercress, by Andrea Wang, herself a Newbery medal winner for the book.
Jason works in watercolour and illustrates books for children. Among the books he has written and illustrated are: Redwoods, Gravity, Island: A Story of the Galapagos, Coral Reefs, Grand Canyon; in Pie is for Sharing and Watercress he did the illustrations.
Here’s a short video Jason made, aimed for kids, but interesting for us too:

Véronique Komlosy is an artist - painter and sculptor. Born in Plessisville, she holds a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and a certificate in Education from UQTR. She worked in Victoriaville as an artistic project coordinator and taught high school visual arts from 1995 to 2019.
Véronique is fascinated by all the little things that make up ordinary life. In her animal, human or landscape representations, she seeks above all the truth; and hopes that her work will restore the nobility of the sacred and the confidence that slumbers within us. She also has a strong interest in ancient cultures, touched by this quest for spirituality that emerges from their heritage: the symbols, shapes and colors that come to us from indigenous peoples.
Her art is intrinsically linked to the power of life!
