You know that secret project me and Mo Willems have been working on?
Well, this post isn't about that.
It's about a new one.
(Although I assure you the first one is totally rockin' the casbah)
This new project required a trip to Knuffle Manor
for some serious brainstorming
so I hopped on the Warburton Laboratories Inc corporate jet
and made my way to Northampton, Massachusetts.
We had an amazing time kicking around stories, characters and ideas.
But what were we gonna do?
Sit around WORKING all weekend?
Fortunately there was plenty to do that weekend,
like visiting the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art!
I wasn't gonna miss a chance to see Mo's first
soopergiantbig metal sculpture in person:
The sculpture was great, but kinda paled in comparison to the fact that
my book was on prominent display in the gift shop:
And NO... i didn't sneak some copies in and put them there!
They were like that when I arrived, thank you.
While there, we stopped in to see the legendary Jules Pfieffer,
whose work the gallery had a big show for.
He was also in town to be honored at the R. Michelson Gallery's 22nd Annual Children's Illustration Show.
But more on that in the next post.
I'm a couple episodes behind on watching The Walking Dead!
