little ones

Lost pages from an old picture book tell a story all their own; a disjointed melody of dainty little darlings, frightening in caricatured cuteness. Found here.

These bright-eyed bulbous beings remind me of this: The Science of Cute.

dining & doodling

I just received advances of this friendly little trio of doodling books I recently designed for Chronicle Books, featuring the ever-expressive illustrations of Sir Taro Gomi! The pages of these books, to be released this Spring, are meant to be torn out and used as placemats–a way to engage the imaginations of hungry tummies before sitting down for a meal. They seem to me to be the perfect excuse to host a dinner party! Who wants to come?
