“Loren, your art is beautiful. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t be an artist.”

- Loren Long's mother


Loren had an eye exam after having trouble seeing the chalkboard at school.

It was then, at age 14, that he was diagnosed as being color blind.

The optometrist said to Loren's mom that it was no big deal unless he wanted to be an electrician or a dermatologist or an artist.

The problem was...Loren's dream WAS to be an artist.

Loren did not give up on his dream because of his mother's encouraging and immediate response.

And now, Loren Long is a best-selling children’s book illustrator.

I had the pleasure of seeing him, along with the award winning author Matt de la Pena, speak at a bookstore in Maplewood, New Jersey promoting the release of their newest book, Love.

Loren did a quick sketch of the book cover while de la Pena spoke about their collaboration. Here are some photos of Loren creating the sketch.

ART NOTE:

The illustrations in the book were done by a process called printmaking. This was the first attempt at printmaking for Loren. He then enhanced the prints with other various mediums such as paints and colored pencils.
