The Wonderful Mr Ben to Miffy exhibition at The Cooper Barnsley,
a fabulous chance to see legends in children's book illustration close up.
There are originals, limited addition silk screens, signed books and cards,
such a wonderful collection of work in collaboration with the Illustration Cupboard.
I feel so lucky to be included in this exhibition!
Lily and Bear rubbing shoulders with
Maurice Sendak's Where The Wild Things Are! wow!
just waiting for the shop keeper.... and as if by magic.... !
And a very BIG thank you to all the fabulous
little artists that attended the illustration workshop,
so talented and hard working.
They produced some fabulous work creating picture book characters...
Moo moo the monkey,
Desmond Bear ( who went on holiday, sat under a palm tree and a coconut fell on his head!!)
and Lovable the heart, who loved keep fit, sleeping and hugging but didn't like hand stands,
and finally Iron man the snail who didn't like cauliflower!
All absolute stars!
