Sunday is Mother’s Day, so we wish all the mothers out there a wonderful and restful day. In honor of Mother’s day we would like to share several of our illustrators’ lovely images showing a mother’s devotion and why we would be nowhere without them!
Abby Carter is a wonderful children’s illustrator, among other things. Take a look at her website to see all that she does. We’re honoring Dad’s for Father’s Day this weekend and showing some of Abby’s illustrations she created for several children’s books, like Daddy’s Zigzagging Bedtime Story.
MB Artists’ illustrators, Jannie Ho and Laura Huliska-Beith, are front and center at the popular home store, Pottery Barn! They each completed illustrations for collections that are sold exclusively here. Take a look at Jannie’s Halloween collection and Laura’s Thanksgiving collection – then run out and buy for your Halloween party this weekend, and your upcoming Thanksgiving festivities next month!
Be sure to see more from Jannie and Laura at their Artist Representative’s website.
Illustrator Colleen Madden recently finished work on a new children’s book, and all indications are that we will be seeing it everywhere very soon. The story, or words actually, are taken from the Mariah Carey song “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Colleen’s style had the right blend of painterly fun and sweet that Ms. Carey and the publisher, Random House Children’s Books, were looking for. It was a demanding project with a tight deadline, but Colleen pulled it off beautifully. If book sales are anything like the song sales, there is no doubt that the book will be a big hit!
Looks like it’s time for Christmas shopping! Copies will be available starting November 10th.
Colleen is represented by MB Artists. You can see more of Colleen’s work in her Folioplanet portfolio.
For your weekend we’d like to inspire you to find time to make a snow angel or build a snowman with MB Artists‘ talented Constanza Basaluzzo’s whimsical illustrations. Drawn to creating creating images from a child’s point of view, Constanza has been illustrating since a child herself. Hew work appears in numerous books and magazines and can be seen almost everywhere.
One of Deborah Wolfe‘s talented illustrators, Laura Watson, was called upon to create these whimsical and warm spot illustrations for one of her regular Canadian clients, Caffé Demetré. These seasonal spot illustrations can be seen on their fall and winter menu.
We’re sending out a wish for you to enjoy your bone chilling, spine tingling Halloween evening. As a favorite holiday around here, we want to show off a couple illustrations from our talented artists. Don’t get too spooked…or on second thought, we hope you do.
We, for one, are celebrating the extraordinary efforts of the American Worker, and then we’re going to kick up our heels for a little R&R. Hope you do the same! Need ideas? Check out image from MB Artists talent, Valentina Belloni.
