A Burst of Inspiration

I think that it is about time I dedicate a post to my all time favorite illustrator, the absolutely amazing Jon Klassen!  His quirky style and use of textures really make him stand out as an artist. His work usually has an almost childlike simplicity to it yet also has an edge of  dark humor. Check it out...

This is one of my favorites if I was forced to choose.
There is definitely that dark humor that I mentioned.

Beautiful!!! Great illustration of isolation, it's kinda sad and sweet at the same time.

This is so amazing!!!!! I want all of his prints!

Oh and did I mention that he did artwork for Coraline? Because he did. I know know, how much are you in love with him? I want to post all of his prints but I'll let you look for yourself. Also check out the image he used for his about me page. I think I might have to still that idea, it's too cute!

May X never mark just one spot!

Haha, yeah, I talked about him in graphics seminar all the time and I'm sure I mentioned him before that. What can I say, it's love!
