Full-time faculty Nora Krug has illustrated a children’s book for Penguin/Putnam! The book, MY COLD WENT ON VACATION, written by Molly Rausch, tells the story of a germ who travels the world. Publisher’s Weekly says:
A cross between the work of Maira Kalman and Roz Chast, Krug’s quirky, electric-hued pictures combine folk art and cartoon sensibilities. The latter surfaces in her portrayal of the cold, a mucus-green, egg-shaped figure with a red Pinocchio-like nose and pinkeyes. Odd subject matter, but Krug’s artwork makes for a visually arresting journey.
The book is available here. Congrats to Nora!
