It’s time to celebrate another children’s illustrator: this time, Jon Klassen! I’ve loved some of his other books but today chose to use The Rock from the Sky as inspiration.

This is probably my favorite series I’ve ever done; so many childrens illustrators are unique in style, medium, approach to color – all since they’re appealing to little kids! Lots of those things work well for cards.

A slimline card worked well for this to make the sky more epic – lots more space for that watercolor wash to travel! Giving it real estate to move really made the card.

Decorating the inside with a little paint is a lovely treat for the recipient!
