I thought I would post about one of my favorite illustrators today, Christopher Denise.
Christopher works wonders in my opinion.... His characters are not only adorable and endearing but also very much alive in his skecthes as well as in his books.
Light, atmosphere, movement and telling of time are always present in his work.
One of the things I admire the most about his work is how his settings are like characters in a book. They are always powerful and important and play a mayor role in his work. I find his art to be so beautiful and theatrical, like a little masterpiece hold together in between covers of a book.
Visit his website to see more of his work. He also has a blog filled with sketches and beautiful art for you to drool over. I know I do every time I visit. :o)
