BRONZE IPPY AWARD FOR HORSE INDIAN WOLF SNAGS SECOND AWARD

Horse Indian Wolf: The Hidden Pictures of Judy Larson has just won the Bronze award in the Illustrated Children's Books for All Ages category at the IPPYS's.

The IPPY Awards, launched in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving, but often unsung titles, published by independent authors and publishers. Read more about it here: http://www.independentpublisher.com/article.php?page=1442

Earlier this year, Horse Indian Wolf was chosen as a finalist in Foreword Magazine's Book of the Year competition in the Children's book category. Published by Greenwich Workshop Press in October, 2010, Horse Indian Wolf has caught the attention of young readers, librarians and children's booksellers.

COMING IN 2011:

Judy's plans for 2011 include another offering in her "A Tribute to Wolves" series. It might be of the pregnant female wolf featured in "The Alphas," who is now enjoying her pups, a male babysitter with pups, a couple of bachelors contemplating their futures, or a Beta pair resting together as dusk falls. If you have a favorite pick of the above suggestions, let Judy know at judydlarson@aol.com or info@judylarson.net.

At the first of the year, Judy will start working on a large painting of wildly-colored, Native American war horses, interacting and racing towards the viewer. On the schedule, as well, is a SmallWorks painting of a foal basking in the sun and snuggling deep in a bed of wild, purple lupines.

NEW BOOK:  HORSE INDIAN WOLF

9/2010

Horse Indian Wolf Book by Judy Larson

ABOUT THE BOOK

Can you find the camouflaged images in Judy Larson’s artwork? The paintings in this book have hidden images and the stories that accompany them will give you the clues. Often, the concealed image is of a companion, but sometimes it is of an animal that shares the same fate. For example, the Alaskan wolf and the wild horse, both hunted to near extinction; or the great bald eagle—the spirit of freedom—hidden within the painting of a wild horse. Other paintings tell Indian legends and stories of great Native American leaders. The artist’s favorite companions in hidden images are the horse and the wolf, her two most beloved species.

NEW BOOK RELEASE:

9/20/2010

In September, the Greenwich Workshop Press will publish what will undoubtedly become one of the most popular and educational find-the-hidden picture books since Bev Doolittle’s, The Forest Has Eyes. Judy's new book, Horse Indian Wolf, is a 48-page exploration of the importance of protecting endangered species, habitat for wildlife, and the way of life of Native Peoples.  Two themes converge in these paintings and stories: the lives of animals in the wild and the fate of Native Americans who lived in harmony with the natural world.  Inspired by Judy’s detailed paintings of wildlife, author Kathleen Kudlinski weaves biology, ecology and Native American legend and history into an inspired treatise for young and old alike.

Do you see the camouflaged images in Judy’s art?  The stories give you the clues!  Often, the concealed image is of a companion, but sometimes it is of an animal that shares the same fate; for example, the Alaskan wolf and the wild horse, both hunted to near extinction, or the majestic eagle--the spirit of freedom—hidden within the painting of a wild horse.  Other paintings tell Indian legends and stories of great Native American leaders.
