    Great bunch of inspiration! I especially love the mini dummy idea from Simms Taback and fascinated by the fact that Brian Selznick draws small and enlarges his illustrations. Veddy interestink! Also nice to know from Maira Kalman that it helps to be immature and a day dreamer to do children’s books!

    Thanks for sharing these!

    There is so much inspiration everywhere! I love it. And I love seeing their studios and the little things they have around them to inspire them… Did you see how Maira arranged a few items? Random, but really not.

    🙂 Linda, you are too funny…nice accent!
