....I learned from Ed Emberley. Or rather, everything I learned about the significance of eyeballs... I learned from Ed Emberley. If you didn't have Ed's books as a kid, I am here to tell you that that's OK. Its not too late to go out and buy a bunch of them now. If you have kids (and if you have kids who are looking for a fun project this weekend, perhaps???) then you absolutely need to buy the whole set.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was to be a part of this project over at the marvelous Cloudy Collection. My artists proofs arrived today and they are just absolutely gorgeous. Plus, there was an unexpected gift in the box: a print by Ed himself. And it's just teeming with eyeballs.
If you don't already know about Cloudy Collection, check their past editions. David Hyuck works tirelessly to bring illustrators together to create some extremely great and utterly affordable sets of prints. David has an impeccable eye and everyone loves working with him on these very fun collections. Investing in them on a regular basis is perhaps the best and easiest way to begin collecting the limited edition work of some of the best and brightest illustrators working today. Its hard to pick a favorite, but I have to steer you towards this one.... maybe it's just because I'm such a die hard Grickle fan (c'mon, his sloths period alone? Brilliance.) but these are pretty perfect, no?
