The World of Arnold Lobel

The (wonderful) World of Arnold Lobel is on display at The Contemporary Jewish Museum now through March 23rd.  I grew up on his books, illustrations, his adventures portrayed by anthropomorphic characters, his world at the end of his pencil. Seeing his original drawings and peeking into his writing process was a much needed dose of inspiration. While I’ve always enjoyed the adventures of best friends Frog and Toad, my new favorite is The Ice Cream Cone Coot and Other Rare Birds featuring  part bird- part thing creatures such as the Gramophone Gullfinch.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
