Gracie and Elephant fell out of my pen and landed on the page…much like they did in their book. I thought about Maurice often while I was making the book, Elephant’s Story. I was a student of Maurice’s in the 70’s.
The book was drawn to Stan Getz and Miles Davis. However, this piece of art is for Maurice…It was drawn to Mozart.
I am happy that it will be part of the Sendak Memorial.
I am also donating a signed digital print (100% rag paper) from my book Bob published 2002 by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. I have been asked again and again for prints from Bob. I’m sorry I am not more organized and do not remember who you are! Finally I made this print for the auction. Maybe you will be at the Silent Auction at the Javits Center in NYC on May 29th? It is for a great cause. Bob is happy he can be there.
I am including a link to the auction site…a lot of wonderful art has been donated by a group of amazing artists…it is an honor to be part of the event…hope to see you there…if not…they are having an on-line auction as well…..tcp http://abffesilentauction.wordpress.com/about/
