To honor my brother’s spirit and pay tribute to a life devoted to celebrating the goodness in all human life, 25% of my proceeds from KEITH HARING: THE BOY WHO JUST KEPT DRAWING will be donated to The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), of Berks County Community Foundation.  YAC benefits the youth and community of Berks County, Pennsylvania, our family home, by empowering high school students to address issues facing young people in their community.  The students raise money and then devise a rigerous evaluation process to select which nonprofits best meet a targeted community need.

Robert Neubecker, Illustrator of Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing

Robert lived and worked in New York City when Keith was actively drawing everywhere in the city during the 1980’s.  His first hand experience of this era and many hours of getting to know the Haring family personally are evident in his skillful characterization of Keith and the many scenes of Keith drawing throughout his life.

Robert Neubecker draws for Slate.com, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. He is the award winning author of Wow! City!, ‘Wow School” and “What Little Boys are Made of”. His many illustrated books include: “Every Corner Needs a Monster” with Jeane Reidy, “I got Two Dogs” with John Lithgow and “Sophie Peterman Tells the Truth” with Sarah Weeks.” Robert lives in Park City, Utah with his family, dogs, cats, and lizards.
