Artist Talk: Laurent Linn
Laurent Linn: Friday February 16, 10:15 a.m.
Guest of the Illustration Department
Laurent Linn’s love for puppets led him to become an Emmy Award-winning puppet designer and builder in Jim Henson’s Muppet Workshop creating characters for various productions, including the Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island films, eventually becoming creative director for the Sesame Street Muppets. Originally from Dallas, Texas, his love for art led him to New York City where he is currently an art director for children’s and teen books. And his love for transformative stories (and superheroes) led him to write and illustrate Draw the Line, his first novel.
The event is open to the community.
