I've always loved Shel Silverstein's work. When I learned he grew up and lived in Chicago, I started reading more about him and thought it would be fun to put together a brief illustrated tour of his life and make a nod to his poetic and artistic style. His work is a great lesson in minimalism. He could do so much with a few strokes of the pen. Go read (or re-read) some of his classics!
