When I was a kid, I belonged to a book club. Every month, I'd get a new book delivered right to my house. It was awesome! I loved books so much that I really looked forward to that delivery.
Below are a few from that club.
|Illustrated by Denman Hampson. Published in 1964.|
|Illustrated by Blake Hampton, published in 1967.|
This tree has shown up in my work before.
|By Wende & Harry Devlin, published 1966.|
I have always loved scribbly pen and ink drawings!
This is one of my all time favorite books! Miss Twiggly is so wonderfully quirky
and as a tree lover myself, how could I not love her!
I got my first Little House book from my aunt for Christmas when I was seven.
It has been the biggest influence in my career. I love Garth Williams and his Little House illustrations. Even as a kid I'd get lost in the pictures in these books. I just love the soft pencil shading.
