Howl-o-ween!, Rebecca Thornburgh

It’s always a thrill to have the honor of painting an egg for the Great Goose Egg Auction! It’s delicious to paint on a goose egg’s gorgeous, curved, chalky surface, and it was extra fun to draw and paint some cheerfully creepy ghosties and jack o’ lanterns in time for the season!

Rebecca Thornburgh draws silly creatures and thinks up weird stories all day long. She has illustrated over 135 books for children, two nine-foot fiberglass polar bears, a bunch of murals, numerous goose eggs, and an emu egg. When not at the drawing table, she sings – a lot: with the Philadelphia Women’s Music Project, a chamber choir; Reckless Amateurs, an Americana band; Mendelssohn Club Chorus, a big symphonic choir; and her church choir. She also sorta kinda plays the fiddle. She lives with her husband and dogs in a pleasantly spooky Victorian house.
