For a while now, I’ve been threatening a couple of my coworkers that I was going to this, and today I’m actually going to: I’m blogging about a meeting. I mean, come on, in theory, can you imagine anything more boring? But, in reality, this is an especially awesome meeting. I’d go so far as to say even an exciting, inspirational meeting. So, you know, make of that what you will, I guess.
Here’s the deal: every now and then a bunch of us editors and designers here who work on art books and on stationery get together to share the work of the various illustrators and artists that we’re feeling super into at the moment. And can I just tell you that, for the geeky visual book making type person, this is so much fun? So much fun. It’s like going to a great party and all your favorite people are there, and there are balloons and cupcakes and zebras and anteaters and zeppelins and narwhals and lord knows what else.
So, we looked at tons and tons of great stuff from tons of great artists. And I’ve just pulled out a dozen of our favorites (ok, full disclosure, maybe leaning a little heavily towards *my favorites here) to share with you. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
