Illustrator Evan Turk is honored once again for his divine work on the picture book Grandfather Gandhi.  The Marion Vannett Ridgway Award, which honors first-time illustrators, gave Turk an Honor Award, saying:

“Turk’s bold collage technique ably meets the challenge of a text that emphasizes internal emotions and conversations: he employs shadow and silhouette, sinuous lines, and warm colors to achieve a raw visual power across a varied progression of illustrations. His ingenious incorporation of cotton,thread and fabric into his artwork lends dimension to the book’s pages and brings alive its message of turning negative energy into good.” —The Marion Vannett Ridgway Award
