Illustration is an entire part of our everyday life, especially for children. Children books are childhood memories worth framing. Fanciful backdrops for that magical space between dreams, reality and sleep. It's also a creative communication tool, which can't live without talented authors.

For this first issue, i decided to share my vital interest in children’s literature and to showcase +50 of some of the best illustrators pieces i had the chance to discover through deviants galleries since 2 years and half.

In next each new volume, i will also make a special feature of an illustrator.

These artists are using a lots of different medias : watercolor, acrylic, gouache, ink, pencils, collage, prints, and also digital computer-based tools.

DeviantArt is a wonderful community, thanks to members such as yourself.

I'm a full time illustrator myself and working at home can sometimes make one feel isolated. Fortunately, you and DeviantArt lightens that isolation with the wonderful children's illustration that you have posted.

awwwww......... You surprised me again, sis!!! Sweetheart, why are you too amazing? Oh thank you very much for featuring me (and great illustrators, of course!), I'm most pleased and grateful!!!

You know, past two years ago, I didn't see the DA public article about a bunch of illustrators. Yeah, they always feature artists about photography, anime/manga, etc. So I was too sad why they didn't show the information about children's literature....

But now, wow, it's like I said surprisingly excitedly, "Oh my gosh! Anne-Julie is a fantastic woman who did it! AT LAST! HAHAHAHA! Unbelievable!" Yeah, of course I was very happy that you finally made your very very first DA public article about children's literature.... Amazing, amazing, dear sis. You did the excellent job.

Of course, you should continue to make more articles about children's literature and illustrators. It's too interesting and great to know more about them, to expose their illustrations to everyone, etc. Illustrators should deserve.

:)

Dear Anne-Julie, know that you're the best. Now, I'm saluting to you seriously!

:salute:


Thanks for everything. Thank you also for featuring great illustrators. I know, I'm talkative. Okay, now I'm going to fave your incredible DA news.

Much love to you, my dearest sis!
ILLUSTRATORS ROCK! yes, we rock too, sis! hee hee hee!



P.S. hey, know that you're one of my favorite amazing illustrators, of course.
