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 is now studying illustration at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
