Children's books illustrations: Superdog Suzy. Superdog would fly, but also needed her rest; and Breakfast Time, about a boy who spilled milk.
The Bridge is a play based on the true story of a well-respected Russian professor of architecture who sacrificed his own work for the sake of one of his students. When the student tried to flee Russia, the dean of her school refused to release her academic records, making it impossible for her to leave. The professor made a deal with him: in exchange for the student's records, the dean could pass off as his own the professor's entry to an architectural competition, a model of a bridge.
The illustration conveys the sadness of the forced parting and the strong presence of architecture in the characters' lives: the dead-centered composition, the "architectural" details of the face, ans the bridge that bought the freedom and future of the young girl.
