Focus on Illustrators part 2–Kazu Kibuishi

Published May 8, 2015 by neverwearmatchingsox

If you have an elementary or middle school kiddo, you may have heard Amulet being thrown around your literary household….if not, then let me share the beauty of Kazu Kibuishi with you.  In addition to being author and illustrator of Amulet, Kazu also was chosen to redesign the Harry Potter covers for Scholastic in 2013…and being an avid Harry Potter fan I was anxious to see what these new covers would be like.  In my humble opinion, they are amazing.  There a few different ways for you to experience Kazu..his website Bolt City is where you find out current information (http://boltcity.com/), Gallery Nucleus has his art work for sale (http://www.gallerynucleus.com/artist/kazu_kibuishi), Scholastic has a page for him (http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/bookwizard/books-by/kazu-kibuishi#cart/cleanup) and just recently I discovered that he has signed a 3 book deal with Scholastic Graphix to celebrate Graphix 10 years in the industry (http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/comics/article/65449-new-telgemier-kibuishi-deals-mark-graphix-s-10-year-anniversary.html).
