I am told that my mom had read some Shel Silverstein poems to my brothers and I when we were younger, but I can't recall the poems or the artwork, but I am sure it's true. I recently picked up a couple of Shel Silverstein books with the suggestion from my wife. She had read his books back in the day and thought we shared a similar style. She was right! As soon as I picked up one of his books and saw Shel Silverstein's art, I instantly felt a connection.
Here are a few Shel Silverstein illustrations that I particularly find quite humorous.
