Ryan T. Higgins made this drawing, based on his popular Mother Bruce series, especially for the 2019 Carle Honors. Drawn in pen and ink, Bruce the bear has fallen asleep after an exhausting day as a single parent to a gaggle of goslings.

Mother Bruce (2015) is a New York Times bestseller and was awarded the E. B. White Read Aloud Award and the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Honor in 2016. Higgins has led several hilarious storytimes at The Carle.

All proceeds benefit The Carle's mission to instill a love of art and reading through picture books.

Artwork is framed by R. Michelson Galleries using archival materials.

Winners can take their artwork immediately after The Carle Honors. Absentee winners will receive their artwork via Federal Express; a flat shipping fee of $150 per artwork will apply.
