so many kids excited
to meet an author
Last month, I paid a short visit to New York City and Boston, mainly to see friends. You can see some of those photos here. One of the most thrilling stops I made though, was to the Society of Illustrators in New York City. The illustrations they had on display, sometimes along with what those pieces looked like in print, were fabulous and inspiring. So many beautiful paintings.
Those alone would have been a big enough thrill, but SOI also had an exhibit of Batman sketch covers (on display till Nov 7)!! This collection was so amazing – so many of my favorite artists were represented! There was Jae Lee, Dave Gibbons, Howard Chaykin, Dustin Nguyen, Frank Quietly, and many others! Here are some lil snapshots, and one of my favorite illustration paintings. :)
If you’re an artist, and if you visit NYC, you HAVE to visit the SOI Musuem. I’m so very glad I went!
I stood still, straining,
then I could hear it – the rain –
falling through the trees
