Brian Wildsmith

I finally visited the Illustration Cupboard a few weeks ago, saw lots of 'old friends' and found a new one. Somehow Brian Wildsmith has escaped me until now, though of course now I've 'met' him I see him everywhere. But I'm full of admiration for his glorious pages of colour and texture, and for his lively animal worlds, and his fascination with birds of all shapes and sizes.
