Illustrator Love: Jon Klassen


My friend just pointed out Jon Klassen's work to me. Is this not GORGEOUS?

Absolutely inspiring. Check out his website here or his blog here.

He also did preliminary drawings for Coraline. Okay, can someone tell me WHY hasn't Jon been asked to do a picture book yet? Seriously. I searched Amazon and found nothing.

Calling children's book art directors and editors. Sign, Jon!

Oh wow, that's lovely work. I love the first one, and the second one is wonderful as well.

I am happy to report that Candlewick Press signed him up last year for a picture book called THE HOUSE HELD UP BY TREES to be published in Feb 2012. I also just saw his 1st picture book which came out this month ~ CATS NIGHT OUT ~
