On January 21, 2013, Richard Blanco read his poem "One Today" at Barack Obama's second presidential inauguration, becoming the first immigrant Latino homosexual to serve as the inaugural poet. Blanco later asked Dav Pilkey to illustrate his poem in picture-book form. The poem and the book celebrate the unity of all Americans, no matter their race, class, or country of origin.

Pilkey is creator of the successful Captain Underpants and Dog Man series, which have sold more than 93 million copies combined.

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.
