Carolyn Watson Dubisch, Wade Zahares, and Mike Dubisch talk to artist/ illustrator Rose Cooper from California. Rose Cooper is an author and illustrator with Random House Publishing and represented by Rosemary Stimola of Stimola Literary Studio. Her series, A Blogtastic! Novel, is translated and published in over 13 countries. Gossip from the Girls Room was picked up by Scholastic Books in 2013 and now appears in the Scholastic book clubs and fairs. Dead Series, Rose's new illustrated humor series for teens, will be released in 2015 with the first book, I Text Dead People. The ideas behind this series comes from her personal teen experiences growing up on cemetery grounds, a step-dad who was a mortician, and nearly dying of embarrassment on several occasions.
Also joining us is artist Alden Cole. Originally from Maine he studied at RISD in Providence, RI for college. Two years in the Air Force pushing papers. NYC for 11 years of fun and fashion – designer and illustrator on 7th Ave. After his job in publishing became a nightmare he moved to Philadelphia, PA in 1986 to study metaphysics and astrology for two years. He's been there ever since. To keep the roof over his head and food in his stomach, he worked as a production artist, the non-glamorous side of advertising. Then he bought 3-story row-house in 1991and has been transforming it into a museum ever since. Join us today for your window into the world of art.
