Next month, San Francisco's Contemporary Jewish Museum will open an exhibition celebrating the wonderful work of children's author and illustrator J. Otto Seibold.

The exhibit will focus on Seibold's Mr. Lunch series (written with Vivian Walsh) that in the early 1990s were pioneering examples of digital art and design in children's books.


“I'm digging through Mr. Lunch computer files made twenty plus years ago. It’s like looking at an old school photograph and thinking: I remember that shirt!,” says Seibold. “Now I'm bringing it all up to 2014 in the hopes that school age kids who come see the exhibit will look back in twenty years and think: I remember that show!”
