OH NO! 826 L.A. Project/Gallery Nucleus

Monday, August 2, 2010

Mind-controlled dogs+city-destroying robot+science fair gone wrong= the premise behind Dan Santat and Mac Barnett's new picture book, "Oh NO"! (Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World). The guys invited illustrators to draw their own visions of that fateful day on supplied materials and even fill out OFFICIAL police reports for a fun way to help raise funds for a great cause.

Original art and police reports will be auctioned in two phases to benefit 826 LA (an amazing non-profit writing and tutoring center) and will also be featured in a show @ Gallery Nucleus in L.A. next week. More information on the project and auction schedule here!

Check out the movie above to see previews of some of the great illustrator submissions. Here's my eyewitness report: desperate knee-socked heroine on the hood of my taxi during ROBOT MAYHEM! Auction details to come.

Congrats to Dan and Mac! The book is so much fun and the monster-flick art is glorious. Click here for some of Dan's juicy concept and interior art here at 7-Imp & watch his movie trailers at the bottom!
