My son, Ben suggested I take photos as I went along.
My beautiful granddaughter, Hannah was the model.
Now I'm ready to work on the companion piece.
Two pages of original drawings (page 126,127) of Mendel's Daughter (La Fille de Mendel) were just acquired by the Mémorial de la Shoah, the Holocaust Museum in Paris. Below is one of the drawings. It's an honor to be part of their collection. The pieces are currently included in an exhibit of comic art at the museum and can be seen there until July 2018. Then they travel to other venues.
Here is a colorized page from Two Cents Plain that I thought would be appropriate.
(and also become President...)
I've been working on a bunch of things.
One of them is preparing Two Cents Plain: My Brooklyn Boyhood for the web.
Should be a while before it's up. Here are 3 pages. Hope you like 'em.
Haven't posted for a while. Here's a bit of an update.
Original art from these pages of Mendel's Daughter will be included in the Comics and the Holocaust exhibit next year (January-October) at the Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris. From there it will travel to other venues in Europe.
Also, the original art on this page became part of the permanent collection of the Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich POLIN in Warsaw. and will on display shortly.
And still drawing, drawing...
I was pleased to be invited to show some of my paintings at the Balch Institute for Ethnic Studies in Philadelphia in 1997. In commemoration of that exhibit, Kay Myers has created lovely poems for the art work. Take a look at the poetry for the painting below at http://artandreligionpoems.com/lemelman.html
Enjoy the rest of that site... inspirational.
