That’s right … 2022 marks 40 years since the world was introduced to the little alien visitor in Steven
Spielberg’s feature film E.T. the Extraterrestrial.
That also means that it has been that long since I had the privilege of being asked by Simon & Schuster
to illustrate several books for young readers about everyone’s favorite new visitor from outer space.
In celebration of the addition of this wonderful little guy to our lexicon of favorite movie characters, I
selected 40 of my favorite E.T. book illustrations for a special tribute on Facebook. I had so much fun
with my 40 images for the 40 th Anniversary that I decided to add this page to my website for the
remainder of 2022.
Happy Anniversary, E.T.
