it's a small world

(Mundo Pequeno, Gouache)

I'm so thrilled to be participating in the "It's a Small World" tribute show at Nucleus. I managed to squeeze in some painting time between newborn diaper changes, my two year old's toothaches and illustrating a 24 page children's book. It wasn't easy, but I just couldn't miss the chance to pay tribute to my favorite Disneyland attraction and one of my favorite artists, Mary Blair.

Here's more info about the show from the gallery:

"Timed with the release of illustrator Joey Chou's latest children's book from Disney Press, a select group of talent will contribute work paying homage to this beloved and enduring theme of global peace. The book features Chou's illustrations interpreting the Sherman Brothers classic song written for the popular Disney park attraction.

This is an all-ages event. Exhibiting artists in attendance including Joey Chou who will be on hand signing copies of the new release. "

A big thank you to Joey Chou for having me in the show. Please be sure to check out his work and his beautiful new book!
