Viewing Pen to Paper at GR Works
|by Glen Keane|
Case in point – the Pen to Paper exhibit currently at GR Works in Downtown Los Angeles. The students of 826 wrote stories about their imaginary friends. Then, professional illustrators and animators produced illustrations based on their stories. Here’s the details.
Obviously, I had to check it out. So I made my way downtown and stopped in during the opening reception. It. was. Awesome. On the wall were displayed the original stories alongside the artists’ interpretation. Usually when I visit a gallery it doesn’t take me too long to see everything. Not this time. The stories were so entertaining I wanted to read each one. And the illustrations? Could they be anything less than amazing? Here’s a sampling.

Good stuff, right?
I loved the work so much that I just had to buy the book because I know these are stories I want to read over and over again.
