After learning about Pepper Roxas and CANVAS, I now look at children’s books from a different perspective. I used to see them as beautifully illustrated books. It was only recently, when I learned about the artists behind those illustrations, that I came to appreciate them as forms of art. In fact, if you’re thinking about wall decorations for your kids room, framed pages from illustrated books of CANVAS and Adarna are an inexpensive option.
Through a link from Dan Matutina, I stumbled upon another beautifully illustrated children’s book: Bengal Lonely by British artist, Chris Madden. Although the story is quite sad (it’s about a tiger with no friends ), the illustrations are cute and interesting.
Framed versions of these drawings will go well in a boy’s bedroom. Besides, if you don’t know the book’s story, the drawings don’t appear to be very sad (except for the toxic sign on the tiger’s coat which you can censor by pasting another heart on it, hehe).
