Description of Pictures: John Parra, Lulu Delacre -- Through John Parra's art we see the back wall of a building made beautiful by a community mural in "Hey, Wall." Lulu Delacre illustrates, "Olinguito, de la A a la Z!," a beautiful Andean cloud forest with the help of a newly discovered South American mammal. The bilingual text is combined sentence by sentence.
Note: Lulu Delacre was also at the presentation but I didn't catch any pictures of her presentation. Sorry!
Latest Title: Hey, Wall: A Story of Art and Community

His art also can be seen at U.S. Post Offices on six new Forever Stamps titled: Delicioso. John’s most recent book, “Hey Wall,” with author Susan Verde, was released in Fall 2018.
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
