His sister Lisa is so talented she can make butteflies and candy fly out of her saxophone when she plays it. It turns out that Keith Knight confirms this is true. If you haven't seen this happen, it means that the saxophonist in question isn't as good as Lisa. Even if it's Kenny G.
Aside: in our office hangs a poster of the Chuck Jones exhibition at the Circle Gallery in New York. It was given to me when I worked at Warner Books in New York and has followed me to every job. While I can't say I have every cartoon memorized, I have been a huge cartoon and animation fan for much of my life. Knight noticed this when he was at the store, but probably didn't know it was mine. Now he knows!
Knight's day began at Morning Blend on TMJ4. You can watch his interview here.
Knight visited two schools. If you are an educator and want to know more about our authors-in-schools programs, contact Todd.
Knight then spoke to Mitch Teich at Lake Effect. We'll post that interview when it airs.
And then Knight did a public event at Boswell, cosponsored by 4Core. They did a great job at getting out kids, and we also had a number of adults who followed Knight's work as a cartoonist, having created three strips - the Knight Life, (th)ink, and the K Chronicles. He has was named a 2015 History Maker by the NAACP. Read his bio here.
Why have signed copies of Jake the Fake at Boswell.
