Carson Ellis is the award-winning author-illustrator of the picture books Home and Du Iz Tak?, the latter of which garnered a 2017 Caldecott Honor and E.B. White Read-Aloud Award.
She has illustrated many other books, including bestsellers The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart, The Composer Is Dead by Lemony Snicket, and The Wildwood Chronicles by Colin Meloy (who happens to be her husband).
Carson was awarded silver medals from the Society of Illustrators for her work on Wildwood Imperium and on Dillweed’s Revenge by Florence Parry Heide.
Her work has also appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Poetry Magazine, among others, and she’s the illustrator-in-residence for Colin’s band, The Decemberists.
Carson lives on a farm in Oregon with Colin, their two sons, one cat, two llamas, two goats, one sheep, ten chickens, a family of barn owls and an unfathomable multitude of tree frogs.
Because there are over 500 postcards made of different mediums by different artists, we're unable to list the method used for creating the card. Some are ink, some are painting, others used different printing techniques like silkscreen — but each one is a unique work of art made by the artist just for this show.
They're made on a commemorative postcard printed just for the show.
