These are my picks for this month's really cool blogs from some of the illustrators at the Picture Bookies Showcase site. These are just a few mind you, there's such great talent over there. But, these are the ones I'm visiting this month and getting to know over a cup of coffee. I can't help but be inspired, I hope you will be too. Jago. The name says it all. Kristi Valiant. Spontaneity instantly comes to mind when you view Kristi's work. Her images are honest, open, slightly quirky and so much fun. Ginger Nielson. One of my favorite children's illustrator who's work both delights and inspires me. Like a child on Christmas morning I secretly await her new posts every week on the Picture Bookies Showcase. Janee Trasler. Or, as I affectionately think of her...Janee the Wise. Her illustrations are so insightful and truly capture a child's heart.
