weekend inspiration - children's book illustrators

Amazing children's book illustrators are this weekends newly found inspiration. I'm definitely going to have to start collecting anything, and everything, from these two super talents!
The first illustrations are by Marc Boutavant, aren't they glorious? I want to go exploring in the first one!


This is Mouk, a little bear who travels the world.


The second illustrator for today is Dahlov Ipcar. I just love the colors she uses, and the deer are just beautiful! What amazingly talented people, I hope they inspired your weekend too! Enjoy. ♥

oh, I love your post, just what I needed! I love finding new illustraters... I am hoping one day that I will be one of those people on a blog like yours! (I have been working on a children's book for a couple of years now, unfortunately, I am my own worst critic... ha ha ha)
Thanks for the great post!
