Sophie Blackall Prime Meats Final Art Drop




This morning as I do most weekends mornings I had breakfast at Prime Meats in Carroll Gardens. Only on this particular Sunday morning I was meeting Sophie Blackall. She was waiting paitently for me. Next to her sat a portfolio with her final art for Aldus Huxley's only picture book The Crows of Pearblossom. Both of us were in need of a coffee. Sophie because she pored everything she had in the finishing the final art the night or hours before and I from celebrating a friends birthday. What she was about to show me was beyond my wildest expectations. I can't wait to share more about the making of this book very soon. In the mean time here are some photos from The Crows of Pearblossom the Art Drop.




Also I highly recommend Prime Meats for a tasty breakfast.

Rebecca, if you are ever in Brooklyn a breakfast at Prime Meats is a must. You'll find me there every Saturday morning. Slowly turning into and old man.

Huh - sounds dangerous - did not know about breakfast there. Looks like proper coffee.

But, "Brooklyn, bah?"

Now I must find a child on whom to inflict the gorgeous book.
