Brown Bear Play

It's exciting to see people posing with the cutout I painted for the play  “A Brown Bear, A Moon, and A Caterpillar: Treasured Stories by Eric Carle.”  on people's facebooks and blogs! This Saturday the Governor is going to be at the Theatre to read one of Eric Carle's books. Wonder if he'll stop for a photo opportunity.....

Cavedrawing


Cavedrawing was the final image for my Advanced Illustration class, and I don't want to be done, but I feel like at this point doing anymore could possibly be over-doing it.  My inspiration for this was mixing themes of educational children's museum artwork with behavioral development issues.

This Friday is the BFA show at Kosar Studios... and again, here is the link, and everyone is invited!

BFA 2012 Show and Brown Bear

I wanted to make a post of 2 events coming up (and already happening).







Chicago Children's Theatre and the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia are presenting  “A Brown Bear, A Moon, and A Caterpillar: Treasured Stories by Eric Carle,” at the Biograph May 2nd to the 27th.  It's ideal for kids aged 2-7 and the cutout I painted (see above middle image) will be there!  There are fruit on the back of it, and I wish I got a picture of it... but I will soon!
