ELEPHANT’S STORY…Art in Brattleboro, VT at Brooks Memorial Library…

The original idea for ELEPHANT’S STORY began with a call from a librarian…(see link)

It makes perfect sense to show and share my process…from sketches to press sheets..in the cases at the Brooks Memorial Library.

The Brooks Memorial Library has filled these cases with artwork from children’s book illustrators for…I’m not sure how many years…but it is a great opportunity to see how different illustrators (and authors) approach the task of creating a picture book.

Elephant and Gracie will be in the cases through the end of October…I’m not sure who is showing next…you’ll have to go to the library and find out….tcp

PS…If you get a chance to see the show….don’t forget to go into the stacks…and check out their books!
