You all already know by now about the tremendous Blogging for a Cure effort organized by the ladies of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. Today’s my day to point you to a wondrous snowflake that’s part of the auction, this one by Jimmy Pickering.
Be sure to check out the images from Pickering’s solo show "sweet, sweet evil" and the fabulous books he has both written and illustrated for children.
The 2007 online auctions for these beautiful, hand-painted snowflakes will take place November 19 to 23, November 26-30, and December 3-7. The outrageously cool snowflake above by Jimmy Pickering will be live during the December dates.
Today’s other featured snowflakes are:
- Elisa Kleven, by Roz Fulcher at Rozzie Land
- Consie Powell, by Becky at Becky’s Book Reviews
- Frank Dormer, by Adrienne Furness at What Adrienne Thinks About That
- Sheila Bailey, by Elizabeth A. Briggs Jones at Lizjonesbooks
Note that the illustrators and snowflakes that bloggers are featuring are only the ones that the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute had ready to go when this multi-blog event was organized. There are even more snowflakes at the Robert’s Snow auction site. Check them out and happy bidding!

Wow, what great images at “sweet, sweet evil”! And I need to see that new book of his! So many “!”s here, but what a fabulous snowflake and artist whom I’m not terribly familiar with.
Thanks for participating, Gwenda!
Skelly? Frognapped? I am so there. Thank you for introducing me to a new illustrator!
Man, this is so cool! I wonder if he could be talked into doing YA covers. I love this style!!
Hah! Scary! Somehow those sweet snowflake edges look more like razor blades on this one. Cool flake!
Wow, is this flake ever different from the others! No cutsie here!
