John Kerschbaum in the Met!

Over the holidays John Kerschbaum sent me an amazing poster that he recently completed for NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art. It's a Family Guide/Map of the entire museum with seemingly every artifact in the museum drawn into it, a maze of detail that would make Will Elder proud and that will spellbind kids in ways that I bet the Met has trouble doing sometimes, unfortunately. Cartoons to the rescue! The poster is available for free at the museum.  Just ask for a "Family Map" at the main info desk in the Great Hall.  The Museum is currently working on a swanky version available for sale in the gift shop and an interactive online version as well.
 
John also did some spot illustrations for a museum brochure, and that is online. Click here for a PDF. But don't forget to look for the poster.

As John put it, "Now I get to tell everybody that I have some drawings in The Metropolitan Museum of Art without being completely full of sh*t!" Well put!
 
UPDATE: John was kind enough to send me a jpg of the poster, which will barely be visible on the screen here given its size and detail, but should give you an indication of what I'm talkin' about:
