The wonderfully talented and diversely careered Gerald Lazare is celebrating, along with his equally talented wife Setsuko Lazare, their new book: "East Meets West", on April 2nd in Toronto. If you've followed this blog at all you know that I grew up in the early 1970s loving Gerry's beautiful 1960s work in my elementary school readers (original art from which now hangs on my studio wall). And before that he was a pioneering Canadian comic-book artist (along with Golden Books legend Mel Crawford) in the 1940s!
Now you can enjoy their paintings in book form in this stuning new collection.
So if your going to be in the Toronto area that day and want to say hi be sure to RSVP. And tell them Glen sent you!
