The fine folks over at the Muppet Musings blog (which you should really check out) have provided the world with some awesome information: a new book of Jim Henson’s doodles is coming out this fall. Doodling with Jim Henson will be released on October 1, 2011 and we have the full description of the book below:
- Features easy step-by-step instructions for learning the fine art of doodling through the eyes of celebrated artist and puppeteer Jim Henson.
- Includes a brief history about Jim Henson and his influence in art, puppeteering, and television, as well as several of his simple yet profound life philosophies.
- Contains a variety of doodle content, including Jim Henson’s character designs, dingbats, borders, frames, backgrounds, and more!
Jim Henson, an extraordinary artist and visionary, invented unique worlds and characters that remain just as vivid, original and fresh today as when they were created. A television pioneer, an innovator in puppetry, technology and visual arts, and a performer who literally brought to life some of the most memorable characters ever, Jim Henson’s impact on entertainment, education and culture continues to this day more than 20 years after his death.
Sounds pretty cool, right? I know I’ll be picking up a copy!
And speaking of cool books. Remember when we mentioned The Tales of a Sixth Grade Muppet book that would be coming out this fall to promote The Muppets? Well, the cover art has been revealed and discovered by our friends at ToughPigs! Check it out:
Looks pretty Muppety to me! I love the scribbly drawings in the background. Looks like what I still draw in math class!
