It was easy to get sucked into the vortex that the world wide web can be, so a quick look showed this image came from here at the Illustration Cupboard.
We have a love of all things Lauren Child in our home and particularity at the moment as Talia has been working on her Tilly illustrated book in Lauren Child style - and carrying around her copy of Pippi Longstocking "trying to look like an author Mumma " I couldn't help but look deeper. ( that story is shared over in our Issue Two of Teapot
It made me realise there would have course have to be a dedicated Lauren Child site.
and yes there is and holy dooly it's totally gorgeous and in her style - of course.
I have just spent half an hour playing in there - and can't wait to share it with Talia in the morning.
Her section on books allows you to click a book - and see the cover - and a peek of what's inside.
The pages are animated too with wiggly eyes and a swimming fish
On this page she offers a look at each of her characters - click a badge or image to take you to each one
and you get an insight into how the characters were developed
This is totally fabulous - a film about Lauren herself - sadly it's not complete but it starts and is totally divine with an opening picture of her as a child - there once was girl who loved guinea pigs...
Another section shows all her exhibitions - you click the litle view finder to move on through - darling!
the FAQs so beautifully answered I know Talia will love reading these.
and finally you can sub to a newsletter too. Thanks Kate for the original Pin :)
