when i went to pick up my mom at the san francisco airport a couple days ago, i waited for her at the luggage claim. i sat beneath this great imagine bus exhibit. i didn't write down the name of the artist unfortunately (all elementary school kids), but the one above is called bumblebee house, i remember that. bad photo—sorry.
my mom and i went to the san francisco center for the book exhibit, once upon a book. the exhibit features six children's book illustrators and focuses on their process(es) of creating illustrations. i liked them all, but i especially enjoyed maira kalman's work. so funny--both the text and the paintings. (i finally made the connection that tibor kalman was her husband. i have appreciated them both for a while now.) here's a fun, short youtube of maira talking about her books about pete (who is her dog in real life).
