Straight for the Art | Kazu Kibuishi’s library illustration

by  in Comic News Comment

The state of California, in what is looking like a perpetual budget crisis, is contemplating huge cuts in school libraries, but school librarian Marie Slim and bookseller Pat Nelson are ganging up on them. The two have asked a number of prominent illustrators to help advocate their cause, and one of those who has responded is Kazu Kibuishi, creator of Copper and Amulet. His piece features Miskit, the toy rabbit from Amulet, and can be downloaded, along with illustrations by Aliki, Brian Selznick, and other illustrators, from the SLA Advocacy page.
