Robert Sabuda (not to be confused with Andy Kaufman sidekick Bob Zmuda) is the king of pop-ups. He has illustrated, designed and written more than 20 unique children's books since the late '80s, including innovative pop-up takes on classics such as Alice in Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Wizard of Oz. (His Encyclopedia Prehistorica series is particularly boss.) A graduate of New York City's Pratt Institute, he's well-known in the world of children's illustration for using innovative techniques such as faux stained glass, murals and batik in bringing stories (and dinosaurs) to life. Robert Sabuda: Travels in Time and Space, a new exhibit now open at the Irving Arts Center, showcases his art in several mediums, including mosaics, cut paper and stained glass, giving fans a unique view into the artist's creative process. See it now through July 27 at the Irving Arts Center, 3333 N. MacArthur Blvd. Call 972-252-7558.
