Black & White exhibit
Black & White is a terrific concept for an exhibit – it’s so contrast-y. The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s upcoming show on that theme includes fifteen of my drawings. One is a graphite frottage, a technique related to rubbings, only more creative in that the textures are combined to make new images. I am also using frottage for a non-fiction picturebook. Another is a charcoal still life of moonsnail shells that’s part of a series where I try to make still lifes not so still. All of the others are delicate pen and ink drawings I did for by Joanne Landers Henry. It was originally published by Macmillan in 1988, then eventually republished by Emmis Books. It brings to life the true story of eleven-year old Ollie Johnson and his family, who settled in the wilderness of Indiana in 1832.
