Picture Book Art
You can see this original illustration from a picture book called,
ON MY STREET by Eve Merriam, in "Ordinary into Extraordinary" at the Brooklyn Central Library *Youth Wing* 10 Grand Army Plaza until June 13, 2009. It's FREE!
I never met poet Eve Merriam, but believe we'd be friends. Many authors and illustrators work on the same book project but never meet. I'm so fortunate to know many of my wonderful authors. Anne Rockwell, Miriam Cohen, Norman Rosten, and Olga Litowinsky all requested that I illustrate their books. That is rare. I am forever grateful to them. This book is dedicated to my beautiful neighborhood, Brooklyn Heights.
