Who? Ed Emberley and Eric Carle...

Eric Carle’s art is distinctive and instantly recognizable. His art work is created in collage technique, using hand-painted papers, which he cuts and layers to form bright and colorful images. At first I was contemplating to introduce to Kady; wondered if Kady can recognise these abstract images of animals. I tried and he can!

So I pulled out my 'collection' for him:

PS: I love David Carlson (a graphic designer and newspaper/magazine designer) during my Laselle-SIA school days.

Ed Emberley's Drawing Book: Make a World

Using simple shapes, Ed Emberley shows would-be artists how to draw over 400 things, such as an airplane, anteater, submarine, train, kangaroo, gondola, and much much more! This classic book is packed with cool things that kids - and adults too - really want to draw. Easy and fun, the book provides hours of art-full entertainment. Ed Emberley is the Caldecott Award-winning author of the popular Drawing Book series, as well as the best-selling Go Away, Big Green Monster! He lives in Ipswich, MA.
