I Am an Artist

David Zwirner Books


Starting in a vast complex of studios large and small, a new children’s book written by Doro Globus and illustrated by Rose Blake introduces readers to a cast of characters with myriad approaches to making art. There’s an artist who cuts and sews scraps of found fabrics, another who waxes poetic about an ocean-smoothed stone, and glassblowers who brave the heat of the kiln to shape supple vessels. Rendered in bold, bright colors, I Am an Artist asks “What is an artist and how do they work?”

Published by David Zwirner Books, the newly released title is the second collaboration between Globus and Blake and follows Making a Great Exhibition, which introduced readers to the more logistical side of an art career that, frankly, is mystifying for many adults.
