Below are some images from two very famous illustrators.
Alice and Martin Provensen.
These two have illustrated many, many children's books and have, as I'm sure you'll agree, tremendous appeal.
And Martin Provensen has the honour of being the creator of the original Tony the Tiger.
I still like his better than the one we have today.

Very cool.
Below are images from a show being developed for Nick jr. by a guy by the name of Bob Boyle.
He has created a Blog to document the production and development of his show. Although fairly new his blog already has some valuble insights.
Looks like fun and for anyone interested in developing a show should bookmark this one.

I've got two words to discribe this morning.

@#&*!!! SNOW!!!

Anyhow, surfing this morning brought me to Cartoon Brew where they had a link to a gentleman by the name of Charlie Canfield. His site is worth a look. He also has a short film called Hide and Seek. Check him out.

Here's a cool link to another blog. It's an online posting of an illustrated diary belonging to Irv Spence.(Great animator of the classic Tom and Jerry cartoons). Very interesting to follow as very little seems to have changed from his time to ours. Worth a look. The dates of his diary correspond with our own.

My good friend Mike Smukavic sent me this cool link yesterday.
Kind of a cross between Lane Smith and Tim Burton.
Jimmy Pickering is his name and illustration is his game.

Check him out here.

Also a cool article Mr.Groh sent me on Lane Smith.
