That's Malcolm at the Los Altos Art Museum. LAAM brought in Malcolm's series of children's book illustrators from the Cartoon Art Museum. Yep, he is the founder of the Cartoon Art Museum. This traveling collection has been all over the United States already. The exhibit includes the work of various artists from the last 100 years; illustrators and comic artists show the breadth and techniques of the craft, from idea to art to print, and how processes and techniques have evolved over the past century. It's a fascinating study of ways to tell a children's story.
Here's Malcolm with three generations, Kirsty, Sarah and Karen, none prouder than his daugher, Kirsty. :-) It really was a fun day and an impressive collection and exhibit.
Here is the final book cover. Cool!
Here's a nice piece on some of Malcolm Whyte's history. You can see how this exhibit is a good representation from his experience. Pretty cool!
826 Valentia. She's going to be fun to follow, and hopefully we will see her around town. You can see her strip, the Chapel Chronicles on her website.
Mid-conversation she offered to make a sketch for Sarah, even in the midst of all this attention and goings-on. It was really quite a generous gesture, from quite an inspirational young woman. Keep your eyes out for Emma T Capps!
