I just read a really good interview with illustrator Carson Ellis over at 7 Impossible Things. I've been in love with her beautiful pen, ink, gouache and graphite illustrations for a while now as well as her gift for telling stories with her images. Her style is clean and simple yet detailed and delicate. I recently read Dillweed’s Revenge: A Deadly Dose of Magic and was so impressed by the balance between words and pictures. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a well illustrated picture book with an unconventional story. You can read the interview here.
