Goodnight Songs, Margaret Wise Brown
I had the pleasure of contributing a piece of art to Goodnight Songs, a collection of poems by the legendary author of Goodnight Moon, Margaret Wise Brown. As if that weren’t amazing enough, the book is illustrated by 12 amazing artists! Some I consider dear friends, some I consider heroes. My contribution, for a piece called Wooden Town, is currently on view at the Museum of American Illustration (Society of Illustrators) in Manhattan. The book, published by Sterling, will be available in March.
For those of you in Brooklyn, we are having a book launch signing and celebration at BookCourt in Cobble Hill.
Here’s a video about the making of the book: https://vimeo.com/85869541
