First, I’d like to thank those who took the time to review Acorn and Button on Amazon. It is so appreciated!
Secondly, I thought I’d just share a few illustrations that I like. I think part of finding your own illustrating style is figuring out what you do and don’t like. I’ve looked through many children’s book illustrations and I’m discovering that I’m mostly drawn to simple composition and shapes. I’m also drawn to people and their emotions. I like funny too. I don’t care for illustrations that are too busy. For instance, Richard Scarry’s book, What Do People Do All Day, gives me anxiety. My apologies to Scarry fans. I know he’s genius, but there it is. Here are some illustrations that I like:
These are just a few illustrations of the many that I like. What are some of your favorite children’s book illustrations? Feel free to reply to this email. I’m really curious. Cheers!
