world of william joyce

If you're in the Los Angeles area, don't miss the small but wonderful World of William Joyce exhibit at Central Library in downtown. The exhibit includes artwork from many of his books for children, as well as great accompanying text that gives insight into his artistic process.

If you're a fan of Rolie Polie Olie or Robots, you've seen William Joyce's work; he also worked on concept art for Toy Story, and has illustrated many New Yorker covers as well as other commercial works. But I really love his artwork for picture books best, which is where warm color and subtle humor come through the most. You can visit the free exhibit here in L.A. through August 15th, 2010.

"When I was growing up, nobody thought you could make a living by painting or writing...
but things worked out and this is my job. It's like getting paid for recess."
~ William Joyce
