Super exciting post arrived today! A while ago I was asked to contribute to a German publication called Gestalten. They were compiling a book of illustrations for children's picture books. It was very exciting to be asked to contribute as the publishers have a great catalogue full of wonderfully designed books. You should check out their website here. The book I feature in is called "little big books - illustrations for children's picture books" the link to the book is here. It is a glorious book if you like illustration and of course in particular children's book illustrations. It has several great interviews, one with Kitty Crowther who's work I really admire and one with Martin Salisbury who's writings on children's books I've mention before. I'm completely stoked to be in the same book as many great illustrators I admire. It feels good to blow my illustration trumpet rather than my rather boring Mum one once in a while ;)
