She created Tony the Tiger. Yeah. That’s right. Let that sink in.
I’m so jealous of these amazingly talented and prolific artists with amazing careers back when you had to learn how do everything sans computer/internet. I also have a soft spot for this pair because I had a copy of William Blake’s Inn growing up and it was one of my favorite books. I swear, children’s books used to be done by some of the greatest artists. Another thing to note is the similarities to Eric Carle’s work, and how it still remains totally unique and wonderful. Gah! I love this stuff.
