|One of Sarah's tiny, exquisite gift illustrations|
Heard of this endeavor from the Lines and Colors blog; it's a fascinating undertaking by artist and illustrator Sarah Musi, in respect for her favorite artists.
Basically she's been mailing all of her top picks some original work of her own, and a short query. With this is also a request for an answer to the question and for some original artwork from the artist, however small or simple. Most of the replies she has gotten back (a total of 11 so far) are very interesting to read. I am especially excited to see what some of the artists who have yet to respond will say (if anything), as the list of waiting-to-hear-from contains a few of my very favorite illustrators, such as Jillian Tamaki, James Jean, Tomer Hanuka, and Eric Fortune.
Can't wait to see how it will develop. Good luck to you, Sarah!
