GUYS - PW did a cover reveal thing for PAX. It's a great great book & I get to draw foxes. http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/childrens/childrens-book-news/article/67142-cover-reveal-pax.html …
House Held Up By Trees by Ted Kooser, illustrated by Jon Klassen. Candlewick, 2012.
Jon Klassen: 1. Positive and negative flat elements that overlap each other. Dirty textures and desaturated colors in a lot nuances. 2. Lots of layers put on top of each other. Apparently chaotic at a first glance, wich richness of shapes, sizes and textures. Important things are not hidden behind other things. 3. Really nice environment piece for the eyes to explore its details.
John Klassen - burst of beaden
Jon Klassen is so talented
