This exhibition includes drawings, paintings and prints of children’s book art by author-illustrator Eric Rohmann. Rohmann holds degrees in fine arts from Arizona State University and Illinois State University and currently lives in a suburb of Chicago. In addition to writing and illustrating children’s books, he has taught drawing and printmaking. His artwork has been featured in various exhibitions and permanent collections throughout the country.
Rohmann has created book jackets for a number of novels, including the cover for The Golden Compass, by Philip Pullman. He won a Caldecott Honor award for Time Flies, and a Caldecott Medal award for My Friend Rabbit. Illustrations from those and ten other books are represented — including Bone Dog, Clara and Asha and The Cinder-Eyed Cats — among over 70 finished artworks, sketches, storyboards and process pieces.
This exhibition was organized by the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature, Abilene, Texas.
