The Virtual Memories Show

Designer, artist and writer Keith Henry Brown joins the show to talk about his new kids book, Birth of The Cool: How Miles Davis Found His Sound. We get into the twists and turns of his illustration career, exploring the balancing act of art & commerce in his main role as an art director, the role of jazz in his work, how he started off by achieving his childhood goal of drawing for Marvel Comics, but rapidly realized it wasn't for him, the ongoing evolution of his style, how he discovered his place at the Society of Illustrators, the longform graphic novel he's hoping to create, the issues of race in his career, and more. • Follow Keith on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram• More info at our site • Support The Virtual Memories Show via Patreon or Paypal
