Children Illustrators Showcase volume 1
Illustration is an entire part of our everyday life, especially for children. Children books are childhood memories worth framing. Fanciful backdrops for that magical space between dreams, reality and sleep. It's also a creative communication tool, which can't live without talented authors.
For this first issue, i decided to share my vital interest in children’s literature and to showcase +50 of some of the best illustrators pieces i had the chance to discover through deviants galleries since 2 years and half.
In next each new volume, i will also make a special feature of an illustrator.
These artists are using a lots of different medias : watercolor, acrylic, gouache, ink, pencils, collage, prints, and also digital computer-based tools.

Hi All...

I have started wondering about how I should use all the art books, training movies and similar I have purchased in the recent years.

For some reason I have gained a VERY bad habit of collecting all kinds of resources, but I don't really use 'em. I like to buy stuff, love to flick trough books and watch an awesome Gnomon DVD from time to time.

I have collected 1000's of other assets - brushes, reference images, pdf tutorials, online bookmarks. These are organized in every way possible including tags, folders etc. But again the joy right now is collecting and not using the materials.

So I am really just curious how you guys and girls are using your creative resources.

Do you read the books several times?

Do you try to test all exercises?

Do you sketch like a maniac the minute you see some wise words in terms of art creation?


Oh and I hope you all enjoy the summer :)

Hey! You're art is amazing! :D

I'd just like to let you know that a website has been stealing Deviant Artist's work and compositions and posting them on their site. They're not exactly stealing, they're referring back to people and crediting. However, they have done this without permission. I'd just like to tell you that I've found your work on this site: [link] and if you would like for them to take off your work from that website, please visit my Journal for the e-mail

Thank you for your time!
