7-Imp’s 7 Kicks #287: Featuring Adam Rex (and the Very Uneventful Announcement of a Tiny Blog Break)July 8th, 2012 by jules
I’m going to be brief today, because I may or may not be on the road or in the air or on the water, and I’m about to take a blog break for a few days, too. (If that “few days” is entirely too vague, well … this is how I roll at 7-Imp. My apologies. I mostly don’t know what I’m going to be posting about till, say, the week before; it all depends on what’s inspiring me. That said, I should be back on Wednesday. I think? Yes, let’s just say Wednesday.)
I do hope that my dear kickers come along and leave their kicks, though it may take me a while to read and respond this week. “A while” is vague, too, huh? Er, sorry? I’ll do my best. And, no matter when I read them, I know I’ll enjoy them. I always do.
Today’s one lonely illustration is from Adam Rex. Hey, wait. I take that back. It might be alone / solo / without its Plus One illustration, but it is, indeed, not lonely — on account of how it’s radiating … well, sheer awesomeness, to be blunt about it. That’s a library I want to visit.
Adam has illustrated an upcoming picture book from Neil Gaiman, called Chu’s Day, which I think will be released in early 2013. You can see a sneak-peek of the cover here at Adam’s site. Gaiman himself writes here at his own blog:
Chu’s Day is the first book I’ve ever written for really little kids. Ones who cannot read. Ones who can only just walk. Those ones. I hope that they like it, or at least, that they love Adam Rex’s amazing illustrations.
This image has been online a while, but I secured Adam’s permission to post it here today, too.
Are you as eager as I am to see this one?
Here’s hoping everyone has a good week. Until later …
