Author/Illustrator: Don Tate

The Texas Library Association Disaster Relief Fund helps Texas libraries that have suffered damage from disasters such as Hurricane Rita and Ike.

Each year, as a fund raiser for the Fund, a piece of original art by a generous, kind, wonderful children's book illustrator is raffled. Here is this year's fantastic piece, a study of Duke Ellington by Don Tate. I buy tickets for this effort every year.

Don blogs at Devas T. Rants and Raves!

Oh, my gosh, I didn't know this was by Don Tate. It's funny to see someone's name and think, "Hey, I know them, in a bloggy sort of way!"

You reminded me that I meant to put a link to his blog in the post -- will correct that now.
It is fun to see people you "know" in the news!
