CIA illustration major Karen Sandstrom '12 has illustrated a lively collection of poems called Zombies! Evacuate the School!
Karen Sandstrom ’12, an illustration student at The Cleveland Institute of Art, has illustrated Zombies! Evacuate the School!, a book of poems and writing tips for students ages 9 to 12.
The publisher’s book description says, “This collection of school poems from celebrated performance poet Sara Holbrook illuminates familiar school experiences. Holbrook’s poems range from begging for a few more minutes sleep to a ‘slam-dancing ride’ on the big yellow bus, from the teacher who picks up signals ‘antennae in her hair’ to a full-on zombie invasion. Silly, serious, and everything in between, these poems show kids that poetry is not just for grown-ups, it’s for them.”
After spending 25 years as a writer and journalist, Karen Sandstrom is now studying illustration at The Cleveland Institute of Art. To see more of Sandstrom’s work, read her Plain Dealer article about BFA week at CIA or check out her blog, Pen in Hand.
