ART/ARTIST WEBSITES

Wolf Erlbruch - A German illustrator, who is my illustration HERO.  He has several different styles, each with its own appeal; I think he's amazing.

Henrik Drescher - My first illustration "crush."  Like Erlbruch, he experiments with different styles.

Puppet Heap - Paul Andrejco is a brilliant illustrator and puppetmaker.  You can view some great little videos of some of his earlier puppetry performances. 

Crutonia - Rob Christie was my CowParade & Books2Eat collaborator; his blog explores the magical invented world of Crutonia, and showcases his incredible imagination and illustration skills. Check out his fantastic graphic novels about Crutonia!

Moonfrog Studio - Honor Woodard is a talented photographer, painter, and jewelry-maker. She owns the little studio in NE Georgia where I've taught book arts workshops.
