Starting in a vast complex of studios large and small, a new children’s book written by Doro Globus and illustrated by Rose Blake introduces readers to a cast of characters with myriad approaches to making art. There’s an artist who cuts and sews scraps of found fabrics, another who waxes poetic about an ocean-smoothed stone, and glassblowers who brave the heat of the kiln to shape supple vessels. Rendered in bold, bright colors, I Am an Artist asks “What is an artist and how do they work?”

Published by David Zwirner Booksthe newly released title is the second collaboration between Globus and Blake and follows Making a Great Exhibitionwhich introduced readers to the more logistical side of an art career that, frankly, is mystifying for many adults. Pick up a copy on Bookshop.
