I was so pleased to be asked to participate in Gallery Nucleus‘ tribute to Little Golden Books. I’ve been a life long fan of these gems and some of my favorite artists have had a long history creating illustrations for this series. That iconic spine is pretty much a staple in everyone’s childhood and I still find myself inspired by their pages.
For this exhibit, artists were invited to pay tribute to an existing Little Golden Book title or create a brand new one. I chose to create an imagined Little Golden Book based on Wes Anderson’s film Moonrise Kingdom. As always, the gallery has pulled together a great roster of artists for this show including Lorena Alvarez, Michelle Romo, Joey Chou, Andrew Kolb, Steve Lamb, Chuck Groenink, Leo Espinosa and a bunch more!
A Tribute To Little Golden Tales opens January 18th and runs through February 14th 2014. The opening reception will take place on January 18th from 6 – 10 PM. A Gallery Nucleus event is always a lot of fun. Check it out if you’re in the area!
UPDATE: As of 1/19/14 the status has been updated to SOLD on the Gallery Nucleus website. See all the pieces in the show here.
UPDATE: 01/28/14 – Received the nicest email from the mother of MOONRISE KINGDOM star Jared Gilman. She had seen the piece online and liked it. How nice of her to reach out.
