Gorgeous work by Australian illustrator Anna Walker. Her work is delightful, her characters are a joy! her work has a lovely energy to it with her clever use of colour, pencil line & collage. Her books have won awards and have been translated into different languages. For more of her delicious work, see her blog here and her website here.

I think the work of Lieke van der Vorst is so inspiring and fresh, I love her characters and her bears! The patterned jumpers and tea parties. I don’t know if she has done any children’s books, but I hope she does. I love her explorations using printmaking – her mark making and how her training as a graphic designer adds a beautiful design element to her work. She also has her own illustration and design business – liekeland – seriously gorgeous work. See more here. Lovely.

Oh wow! LOVE Carson Ellis illustration. I didn’t know of her work before I saw The Wildwood Chronicles (written by her husband Colin Meloy) last year. Gorgeous book! Her use of typography and pattern within her work is superb. Her illustration style has a folklore/fairytale feel about it – imaginiative, clever and delightfully inspiring. Carson Lives in Oregon with her family and also illustrates album art for her husbands band The Decemberists. See more of Carson’s work here and the Wildwood Chronicles has its very own page here.
