my latest, greatest, favortist illustrator

Just so you know, I've contracted a baaaaad case of inspiration.

You see, the other day I was visiting one of my favorite blogs, Penguin and Fish, and ran smack into the brilliant work of illustrator S. Britt.


His drawings make me happy...genuinely happy.

And, like smurf glasses, they transport me back in time. I get the same giddy pleasure browsing through S. Britt's drawings that I did attending story hour at the library as a 5-year-old. This doesn't happen everyday.


I like to pretend this is Pokey and me. You can pretend too:


So, if you also feel like being sick with inspiration, I suggest checking out S. Britt's website and blog for more goodies and some seriously funny (how's that for an oxymoron) writing.

The first pic shows an artist with real dedication!

The last pic reminds me of Charlie Brown...I so miss Charlie Brown!

Brilliant! Love that retro look of his work.

Isn't he just the greatest! A lot of his work is woodcut prints too. How cool is that!
