Some Illustrator! Pictures by Melissa Sweet

Melissa Sweet has illustrated over 100 books and has written four, including her latest, Some Writer! The Story of E.B. White, a biography of the author of Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little. In this picture book, the Sibert medalist and Caldecott Honor winner uses White’s letters, photos, and manuscripts—along with her colorful collaged art—to convey the true story of one of the most beloved authors of our time. In addition to original art for Some Writer!, the exhibition includes illustrations for these biographies and other titles: A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams, A Splash of Red: The Life of Horace Pippin, and The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus. Visit the Mind’s Eye Gallery to see nearly fifty of Sweet’s whimsical watercolor, collage, and mixed media illustrations for ten children’s books.
