The life and work of eric carle

Picture Writer Eric Carle Eric Carle, author of more than 70 children’s books, including the best-selling classic The Really Hungry Caterpillar, is profiled in The Art of the Picture Book. Eric is still making books and producing art in his studio at the age of 82. As he meticulously layers a tissue paper collage of a caterpillar, he explains the sensation he gets in his studio: a feeling of being at ease, all alone, when everything falls silent and it’s just him and his job. The film taps into each of us’s deep creative need, a spirit that began in Eric as a small child and continues to this day.

I’m thrilled to announce that Eric Carle: Picture Writer The Art of the Picture Book, a new film about my work, has been released. And that the Woods Hole Film Festival will host the New England Film Festival Premiere of this film on Saturday, July 28th, 2012!
One of the more than 70 picture books I’ve written and/or illustrated is The Really Hungry Caterpillar. I was born in the United States and grew up in Germany. My background is in graphic design, but I’ve been doing illustration work since the late 1960s, when I illustrated Bill Martin Jr’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? I’ve been writing children’s books. My collages are made with my own hand-painted tissue papers, a practice that many kids have experienced and loved in their classrooms and at home. I cofounded The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts, with my late wife Barbara.
