Beaty Museum….rain or shine?

Just had a visit to the amazing Beaty Museum at UBC today and wow, what a place! I was there to speak on a panel with fellow CWILL members about bringing science to children (childrens literature spcifically) From the moment you walk in you are greeted with the amazing blue whale skeleton which was dug up by scientists on a beach in PEI. It certainly was a tough act to follow however, I did get to share my work and talk about science in my illustrations…which was really a pleasure considering I never thought in a million (no…make that trillion) years that I would ever be discussing my work among scientists. Quite inspiring. Now I am on my way back to Gabriola Island amid torrential rains and fog….but alls in a days work and how often does one get to walk beside a blue whale skeleton! Wow!!!!!
