I’ve been organizing a show at Scion LA this week with one of my heroes, Ed Emberley. Remember his drawing books? It’s been great to bring Ed together with some of the now-adult artists he helped inspire. Saelee Oh, Seonna Hong, Raul Gonzalez, Chris Kline, and Matt Leines are all making 72″ x 72″ paintings riffing on Ed’s characters in their own style, and the paintings will be donated to children’s hospitals around the USA. Ed is showing the original mockups of his Drawing Book of Animals, Drawing Book of Faces, Big Orange Drawing Book, and Big Purple Drawing Book – and has made some prints and original drawings for sale to benefit children’s hospital art programs.
