Linden teacher Mark C. Kohut is excited and proud to add “author/illustrator” to his life long relationship and career with the arts. Mark is a veteran elementary fine arts teacher, currently serving 12 years in the Linden Public School district. He holds an associate degree in marketing art and design, a bachelor’s degree in art education, and graduate credits in print making. He’s earned several honors, including the Middlesex County College award for Outstanding Academic Achievement in Advertising Graphics and the 2006 Union County Teacher Recognition award. Mark is passionately dedicated to the arts, devoting his life to creativity, teaching, and performing live music. The inspiration for his recently published children’s picture book, RED YELLOW BLUE BLACK GRAY & WHITE, came from the many inquiries his young students had about colors. “Primary colors are a difficult concept for the young artist to comprehend. It’s like explaining what came first, the chicken or the egg. I decided to answer some of these philosophical abstractions in a poem with pictures”, explains Mark.

In his own words:

I never consciously set out to be an author or illustrator of children's literature. My passion was always rock 'n' roll. Then later, ... teaching. Once this idea came to me, it relentlessly kept nagging at me until I put it all on paper. After I looked at the story, I had no idea how to go about illustrating my vision. Out of utter necessity, I sat down at the computer and started playing around with some pretty ancient software. I overlapped shapes and cut up lines until I saw the characters that appeared in my mind's eye. Six months later, I had a book to pitch to publishers and agencies. That was all in 2012. Fast-forward to present day and I'm celebrating the release of my first children's picture book through an indie publishing house that has granted me creative control over my story and artwork. RED YELLOW BLUE BLACK GRAY & WHITE is now available at http://www.blackrosewriting.com/childrens-booksya/red-yellow-blue-black-gray-white, Barnes & Noble, & Amazon, and will be released in the coming weeks at Amazon Kindle, Smashwords, & other online book stores in addition to eBook platforms such as Nook, Sony, Apple, Kobo, & Diesel. I have no idea what's next, ...but I'm bringing everyone along for the ride. "Read, Dream, & Create" -M.C. Kohut

Book description:

Mark C. Kohut delightfully personifies color while thoughtfully provoking philosophies that parallel the inception of time and life. RED YELLOW BLUE BLACK GRAY & WHITE is a clever, poetic response to the many curious and imaginative children he’s encountered throughout his teaching career. Its content helps clarify color theory in art, examines the visible light spectrum in science, promotes philosophical thought of the universe and our existence, and supports the value of creativity and individualism.

Book synopsis:

RED YELLOW BLUE BLACK GRAY & WHITE is a playful tale of how all colors came to be. The story begins long before the dawn of time when all that existed was the big old Black nothing, alone in an everlasting sleep. Miraculously, it’s woken by a restless, stirring curiosity about its opposite. White brilliantly reveals itself during Black’s first waking moments. As they embrace their coexistence, they accidentally combine, and Gray is the result. Gray is blissful and content until it grows old enough to realize that it doesn’t have an opposite. Unbeknownst to one another, the three make a wish and each is granted a color to serve as Gray’s counterpart. Red, Yellow, & Blue are the divine gifts of primary colors. In the same manner that Gray was conceived, new colors are created when Mother Nature inadvertently mixes colors, making beautiful mistakes while painting her first rainbow.
