Our school recently had a visit from author/illustrator James Warhola. Here we are posing by a sculpture created by fifth graders of his uncle, Andy Warhol.
After his slide show and reading, it was a real treat to see a lot of his original art up close. He brought finished illustrations, sketches and "dummies" (prototypes of books before the finished art is begun).
You can read more about this fantastic day at my teacher blog.
Matthew Reidsrow is a very talented cartoonist who self publishes High Maintenance Machine, a really great comic. We recently traded comics with each other by mail. He was kind enough to sketch the Mighty Andar and the Mystic Yak in his own style. This made my day!
