My children's favorite book: It's always rotating of-course, but one of their all time favorites is Frog and Toad All Year by Arnold Lobel. The whole Frog and Toad series is amazing. The stories are both kind and entertaining, and the relationship between Frog and Toad is wonderful.
A children's book illustrator I adore: Vintage (1960's-70's) Brian Wildsmith. There is some brilliant work in those books. Fantastic lines, texture, color, and geometrical shapes. My Grandma, who was an amazing artist herself, showed me his books when I was a kid. I still have many of them on the shelves in my art studio.
If my life so far were turned into a children's book the title would be: The Curious Constructor
More Joel: Joel is the creative brain (and hands) behind some of our favorite projects: Modern Dollhouse and Furniture, Toddler-Sized Toy Bench and Backyard Playhouse. A trip to Made By Joel is never a disappointment so make one today!
