Inspiration?: Eli, no! by Katie Kirk

Eli, No

I’m not really into children’s illustration nor do I have an desire to produce it myself. But whilst perusing Grain Edit the other day, I came across “Eli, no” by Katie Kirk. So many children’s books use soft colours and detail, in that Lady Bird way, which doesn’t appeal to me at all, so “Eli, no!” offers a nice alternative.

I really enjoy her simple designs and clean, almost non-existant in some cases, use of backgrounds. If I was to illustrate children’s books in the future this is definitely a route, design-wise, that I’d like to go down.
