Favorite Things ~ Illustrators
Some of my favorite book illustrations come from the Brambly Hedge book series by Jill Barklem.
The artwork reminds me of the style of some of Tasha Tudor's work, who is also one of my favorite illustrators.
Aren't they wonderful?
When I was a kid I used to draw little nest-like homes. I have always loved the small, cluttered coziness of this kind of illustrations. I used to linger over the drawings in the Pooh series that showed inside the homes, with the little cupboards and honey pots. And we can't forget the delightful drawings of Beatrix Potter in the Peter Rabbit books. I loved seeing his warm little home when Mother Rabbit tucked naughty Peter into bed.
If you've never read any of these charming books before, I urge you to check them out. They are such a treat.
