Illustration Friday: Repeat, and Chrestomanci

Illustration Friday: Repeat


Sometimes you picture me, I’m walking too far ahead…“, “It’s wonderful Tina, the fruit, everything!“, local history and writerly conversations led, of course, to time travel and pineapples for this Illustration Friday topic.

And then, since I was thinking of repeating and returning, and someone on the DWJ fan list had a bright idea, I also drew Throgmorton and a loud declaration of provenance (for all the property of Chrestomanci Castle announces where it belongs, on being removed). I’ve put it up on Redbubble as a sticker book plate, and without the dotted line as a cushion or tote.

To This Day

To This Day

Shane Koyczan‘s “To This Day” arrived from Annick Press! A different illustrator did every page and they are all vivid, stunning and various.

It’s a wonderful art book, as well as a wrenching poem about bullying and tragedy and hope.

Here is the publisher’s page for the book: To This Day.

And here is the page for the original animated To This Day Project.
