Picture This: High Museum Hosts Picture Book Illustrator Oliver Jeffers
🖍 What would you do if your kite got stuck in a tree? Could you imagine a boy who learns by eating books? What would happen if all the crayons got fed up and decided to quit? Do you think, if you tried hard enough, you could catch a star?
There’s one man who has the answer to these enigmatic questions: Oliver Jeffers, a Northern Irish illustrator, and writer who now lives and works in Brooklyn.
Jeffers’ works have won numerous awards including the No. 1 spot on The New York Times Best Seller list for The Day the Crayons Quit. He has sold more than ten million books since his first book, How to Catch a Star, was published in 2004.
Oliver Jeffers: 15 Years of Picturing Books, an exhibition currently on display at the High Museum of Art through Aug. 7, offers a unique insight into the process of this incredible artist. Featuring 80 original sketches, drawings, and illustrations, the exhibit is like a window into the mind of Jeffers.
