Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing: Kay Haring, illustrated by Robert Neubecker

This was an amazing opportunity. It was pure joy to work with Kay Haring and her loving manuscript. The Haring Foundation really came through with Keith's wonderful art, all under the excellent guidence of Lucia Monfreid, editor and wonderful art direction by Jasmine Rubero.

Many, Many thanks to Dial Books for making this possible, and to my lovely agent, Linda Pratt

 

Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing:

This one-of-a-kind book explores the life and art of Keith Haring from his childhood through his meteoric rise to fame. It sheds light on this important artist’s great humanity, his concern for children, and his disregard for the establishment art world. Reproductions of Keith’s signature artwork appear in scenes boldly rendered by Robert Neubecker. This is a story to inspire, and a book for Keith Haring fans of all ages to treasure.

Praise:

“Neubecker’s colorful illustrations capture the energy with which Keith [Haring] lived his life, and cleverly integrate some of the artist’s original works… Always upbeat, this story is a celebration of art and life.” — Booklist

“Neubecker neatly incorporates Haring’s real pieces into these zesty, bustling, digital-and-pencil illustrations…. Haring’s work pops; Neubecker’s compositions and enthusiastic crowd scenes do it wonderful credit.” — Kirkus

“An enlightening look at the merits of street art and how it allows those who may not ordinarily venture into a museum or gallery to experience and enjoy art….Children will relate to young Haring’s drive to pursue his calling despite naysayers.” —School Library Journal

“Cheerily energetic….Schools with “Picture Person” programs, as well as primary grades art teachers, will want to share this appealing title.” —BCCB

About Kay Haring:

Kay Haring is the younger sister of Keith Haring. She is a wife, mother, writer, hiker, lover of art and the wonders of nature. Kay has spent many years both working and volunteering for nonprofits, in management and fundraising capacities.

Just fun. I put in some of my own 80's street art, We got a Basquiat, and I had a crisp Kenny Sharf in my East Village street art photo collection.
