Image result for should you be a river
Nighttime Ninja's illustrator Ed Young has been busy this year! Should You Be a River (Little, Brown), a touching poem he wrote for his daughters, is the subject of a recent New York Times review. Bird and Diz by Gary Goglio, is a magical book about the friendship of two great musicians. Publishers Weekly wrote: "Young (Nighttime Ninja) draws this homage to Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker not on pages that turn, but on one long piece of stiff paper folded accordion-style, echoing the long, flowing phrases played by the inventors of bebop...."
Ed's artwork for Bird and Diz will be the subject of an art show June 13-August 1, 2015 at the Chappaqua Library in New York: Ed Young: Diz & Bird – Illusrations from Creative Process to Finished Book.
