It’s up! A virtual exhibit from the Carle Museum!

Now & Then: Contemporary Illustrators and their Childhood Art

I was honored to be part of this wonderful exhibit at the Carle a while ago, which was curated by amazing author/illustrators Grace Lin and Jarrett Krosoczka. And now, the museum has made it virtual so that all can enjoy it. So much talent in this exhibit, and it’s wonderful to see what that talent looked like when it was just starting to bud. (My own favorite is Barbara Lehman‘s “Giant Fried Egg Machine,” drawn when she was 12. Holy moly, it’s amazing! I am a HUGE fan of her work. Just, wow. EVERYONE in this exhibit is SO GOOD.)

My own contribution was a drawing made when I was recovering from meningitis in the hospital in 1975. It ties in quite nicely with El Deafo, as you’ll see if you check out this fab exhibit!
