Illustrator: Kevin Hawkes

Chicken Spaghetti has a link to a great article about one of my favorite illustrators, Kevin Hawkes.
When given a book to illustrate, Hawkes puts himself right there, then, he says, he tries to conjure the most exciting, fun image he can get from the words on each page. Sit with a child to look at a Hawkes book; you'll know he's succeeded.
You have not had fun in life until you have read My Little Sister Ate One Hare to a group of kindergarteners. It includes the funniest word in the English language, "underpants." I also love his illustrations for Eva Ibbotson's novels.

Thanks to Original Content for the link to this new blog.
