For those of you who will be in the LA area this weekend, I wanted to let you know about an art show that opens on Saturday, September 19.
A few months back, I shared with you here on the blog my step-by-step process in the creation of a Where the Wild Things Are (the children’s book by Maurice Sendak) tribute illustration. I created that painting for TerribleYellowEyes.com, a website put together by illustrator Cory Godbey to celebrate Mr. Sendak’s brilliant book. Cory has continued to compile a wonderful selection of art for his website by artists from all over the world.
Cory’s website caught the attention of the folks at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California. They selected a nice array of art and will be opening a show and sale of the art this weekend which will run through October 6. Cory (whose work you can see in the latest Flight 6 graphic novel anthology) will be flying out from his home in South Carolina for the show. Some of the other participating artists will also be in attendance.
While my piece was not among those selected for the show, I’ll be there Saturday night as well to take in some great art! Come get swept away by your childhood imagination!
