Honors and Exhibitions

Seven Hungry Babies was selected for “The Original Art 2010” at the Society of Illustrators in New York. A full color catalogue accompanies the exhibition.


“Yelchin’s vibrant gouache paintings… evince a sharp-edged precision and a cartoonish flair that give the art graphic polish…The wide-eyed, wide-mouthed baby birds are positively operatic in their expressive miens.”
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“With unexpected perspectives… the fresh gouache illustrations are awash in blues and white with fire-bright red and yellow birds and feature expressive faces on the avian stars.”
—School Library Journal

“Yelchin’s gouache illustrations are playful, depicting a contented and/or screaming chicks, wee beaks agape, in nice count-up/count-down juxtaposition and an increasingly frazzled Mama.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Zippy rhymes, a twist and expressive pictures by Eugene Yelchin make this a winner for preschoolers.”
—The News Tribune

“Crisp white space surrounds the neon-hued birds for a very satisfying visual effect.”
