Children’s Literary Cafe – June: William Low and His Amazing Digital Art
Heads up, folks. I have William Low in the house to teach us all about digital art, and I’m not afraid to make you learn a thing or two. Here’s a preview of what I mean. And as for the formal announcement . . .
The Children’s Literary Café at the new Children’s Center at 42 nd Street is pleased to announce our event on Saturday, June 6th at 2:00 p.m.:
With the proliferation of digital art in our magazines, our television shows, and our movies, the time has never been better for author/illustrator William Low to show us how he uses this medium to create books. Due to huge advances in technology, illustration is no longer entirely tied to the realm of paper and ink. Watch as Mr. Low discusses his new picture book, Machines Go to Work , and the ways in which computer graphics inform his art and style.
The Children’s Literary Café is a monthly gathering of adults who are fans of children’s literature. Professionals, librarians, authors, illustrators, publishers, booksellers, teachers, and anyone else interested in the field are welcome to attend our meetings. The Literary Café provides free Advanced Readers galleys, a rotating series of talks with professionals in the field, and great conversation. This program is for adults only.
