Oliver Jeffers, Picture books

OliverJeffers, a Brooklyn-based artist, perhaps best known for his award-winning and hugely popular children’s books, is also my favorite children’s book author. But besides the picture books, he is also an artist, working with drawings, paintings and collages – I personally have a thing for his illustrated maps.

In his excellent interview for Yatzer he also talks about his other artistic projects, the Dipped Painting series and his current exhibition of landscape paintings called “Measuring Land and Sea” at Lazarides Gallery in London this month.

Lastly, a fun video where Jeffers talks about inspiration and takes us through his creative process.
