I'm always on the lookout for cool artwork for kids and Oliver Lake seems to be channeling some of my favorite illustrators of the Golden Books. His animals have a playful, kitschy quality and each scene feels like you've opened up a children's book mid-story.

Perhaps this story-like feeling is owed to Lake's own experience illustrating children's books and we'd like to add our vote to the idea that Lake turn these illustrations into their own book someday.

You can see his work at Iota Illustration website and purchase prints from his Etsy shop.
