Children’s book author and illustrator Ed Emberley has used his books to teach a generation of children to draw using the simplest of ingredients: squiggles, triangles, dots, circles and the other shapes.
Some of the kids inspired by Emberley grew up to be professional artists themselves. Opening July 17th at Scion’s Installation L.A. Gallery, Ed Emberley & Friends will explore the influence that Emberley’s books have had on this new generation of artists. Curated by Caleb Neelon, the exhibition features Emberley originals as well as five artists who were inspired by him. The artists include Seonna Hong, Raul Gonzalez, Matt Leines, Christopher Kline and Saelee Oh.
