By John King Tarpinian: On Saturday, Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena, CA, established in 1894, hosted their first ever artist exhibition inspired by an author. For the first exhibition they selected George Cwirko-Godycki, an artist whose work was inspired by Ray Bradbury. Why did they select Bradbury for this first event? For a decade or two Ray would do a signing at this bookshop each Halloween.

I am not sure which of my poor photos Mike will select to show but I was able to recognize each story the illustration was based on without having to read the title.

George Cwirko-Godycki is a freelance artist and illustrator based in San Francisco.
