By the Time I Got to Woodstock

An Illustrated Memoir of a Reluctant Hippie Chick

by Sharon Watts

Overview

By the Time I Got to Woodstock is a look back at who I was in 1969. In this illustrated memoir, I explore "what's goin' on" in America—as filtered through the lens of a suburban teenager who was more "off the bus" than on it. I revisit the road that eventually got me to Woodstock, armed with a sketchbook and curiosity. What WAS all the fuss about? A trip to the Museum at Bethel Woods at the very end of 2017 opened the door. The resulting passion for learning more about what I missed is captured in this whimsical and informative book for all generations. 

Description

By the Time I Got to Woodstock is a full-color art book—on every page I revisit my memories ("There's something happening here . . . What it is ain't exactly clear") with affectionate whimsy. Until you get to the end—that's where you'll find "Footnotes for the Curious" describing detail in the illustrations that you might be wondering about, and "A to Z : Arbitrary to Zow-y (Far Out facts, Mind-blowing Figures, and Spacey Oddities)"—things you probably didn't know about Woodstock. Includes contact info about ordering page art (Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Sly Stone, Bob Dylan—all available as prints).

About the author

Sharon Watts is a writer and artist who loves to archive. She moved to Manhattan at age 18 to study fashion design, and was a fashion illustrator for the New York Times and many other clients for over three decades. Now she lives in the Hudson River Valley and pursues projects that hold special interest for her, never really knowing what they will be until they appear on her radar. Her first book was about a 9/11 hero—Miss You, Pat: Collected Memories of NY's Bravest of the Brave, Captain Patrick J. Brown. She spins gravitas with whimsy and somehow doesn't drop too many plates. Her philosophy: "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."
