I share a studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn, with four other authors/illustrators: Sophie Blackall, Brian Floca, Eddie Hemingway, and John Bemelmans Marciano. Do I need to say that they are all lovely and talented? Good.
Anyway: earlier today, Pen & Oink published a post about a recent studio visit. Among the many nice pictures, they also published a panoramic photograph of the studio itself, with everybody feverishly working at their desk, except for Eddie. Where was he when Robin Rosenthal took the picture? I finally solved the mystery: he must have been photoshopped out! Here’s the original photograph before it was retouched.
