errol le cain (illustrator)

Errol Le Cain’s illustrations from The Thorn Rose, aka Sleeping Beauty, by Brothers Grimm. (Another bedtime story discovery made at a friend’s who bought the books, in Japanese, to read to her little girls.) All these years I thought Le Cain’s work was that of Edmund Dulac. Such goreouusness.

taking imagination seriously (!)

Janet Echelman’s TED talk on “taking imagination seriously” exploded my brain and filled it with glittering stars of inspiration and awe. Must watch!

(King Lear)

A friend of mine’s reading Arthur of Albion to her children at bedtime and when I picked up the book to check it out, I was so taken with Pavel Tatarnikov’s magical illustrations that I sent myself an email with a reminder to buy the book! Love how Pavel’s illustrations have layers upon layers… castles are hidden in armor, swords are citadels, hills are cities, horses are clouds… everything magically shapeshifting in and out of each other. More here if you scroll about half way down the page. Pavel’s illustrated everything from King Arthur and Shakespeare to biblical stories and classic fairytales.

(The Bells of Niamiga)

streuwerk

No idea if streuwerk is a person or a collective, but their landart is the sweetest. How cool that Andy Goldsworthy has launched a generation of land artists?

enchanted

One of Peter’s photos from our trip to PA. This was at a cute little farm in Buck’s County. I love how the crooked slats on the little shed jive with the crooked trees. Cannot believe it’s already June 22. There’s been so much to post, but so little time!
