JULY 28, 2008
I just received an advance copy of “Forever Young.” Last year, Ginee Seo and Ann Bobco at Simon and Schuster/Atheneum Books called to see if I’d be interested in working on a children’s book based on the lyrics to Bob Dylan’s song. They didn’t have to ask me twice. This is one of Dylan’s most loved songs and my job was to not screw it up, and to do something that Bob would like. I’ll post some more about the book when it’s released in September.
Publisher’s Weekly has called the illustration style “chilly.” Just what I was aiming for.
It makes a nice gift.
