"Caldecott Medalist Allen Say presents a stunning graphic novel chronicling his journey as an artist during WWII, when he apprenticed under Noro Shinpei, Japan's premier cartoonist. Drawing from memory is Allen Say's own story of his path to becoming the renowned artist he is today. Shunned by his father, who didn't understand his son's artistic leanings, Allen was embraced by Noro Shinpei, Japan's leading cartoonist and the man he came to love as his "spiritual father." As WWII raged, Allen was further inspired to consider questions of his own heritage and the motivations of those around him. He worked hard in rigorous drawing classes, studied, trained--and ultimately came to understand who he really is. Part memoir, part graphic novel, part narrative history, DRAWING FROM MEMORY presents a complex look at the real-life relationship between a mentor and his student. With watercolor paintings, original cartoons, vintage photographs, and maps, Allen Say has created a book that will inspire the artist in all of us"--… (mais)

Magnificent.

Poignant.

Nuanced.

I enjoyed this. It took perhaps 40 minutes to read.

I think it is it’s own thing. Whole and complete. It could be in picture book biographies or with adult biographies.

Some sentiments are a bit shocking but it is a memoir and his impressions are his own. His scars are his own.

I am so thankful that while frustrated by the mess I am supportive of my children’s love of art. ( )

Super talented Caldecott Medal winner Allen Say uses photography, his own art, and the art of others to tell the story of how he became an artist. Born in Japan in 1937, Say knew at a young age he wanted to be a cartoonist, but his parents were not at all happy about his interest in art. Then the war came, and his parents got divorced, and Say ended up living alone in Tokyo at the age of 13! He turned his apartment into an art studio, tracked down his cartoonist hero, Noro Shinpei, and asked to be his apprentice, and soon began his career as an artist. Wow. Though the text was a little disjointed at times, the art is obviously awesome and the story is inspiring. A recurring theme is "Let your dear child journey," which is an old Japanese saying.

I was especially touched by the afterward, in which Say confesses that he always wanted to write a book with his sensei, but Noro Shinpei passed away before he had the chance, so he sees this book as a posthumous collaboration fulfilling that dream. ( )

Allen Say's autobiographical account of growing up to become an artist and immigrating to the United States, and dealing with family pressures along the way. It is a very wordy read, filled with his own illustrations and photographs of his life. ( )

Beautiful book! Allen Say has a very interesting life. The illustration is wonderful! As you might expect! Fascinating that he was living in his own apartment at 13 and that he had the gumption to find a teacher to be able to follow his dreams. ( )
