Adios, 2008

Well, I wanted to have one more post for the year to reach the annual goal of 100. Unfortunately, I'm clean out of doodles. Yep. I looked everywhere. Zip.

So I thought I'd point you to somebody else's work. I've lately been really digging the work of John S. Goodall. Great, great stuff. Sequential storytelling in a truly innovative fashion.

Happiest of New Years Matt!

One of my favourite illustators! I used to love a little book he did called 'Shrewbettina's Birthday' (I think it was called) - no words at all, but a half page in every spread, so that when you turned the half page it changed the picture. I adored it, but I never had my own copy; it was borrowed - many times - from the library. I do have a few other little books of his; I am sure he had an early effect on the type of work I would do, and I never imagined that one day I would live in the same area as 'Miss Read', the adult country life books he illustrated and which I have also read. Thank you for that great link!

Those half page spreads are amazing. I'm just in love with all of his little books and I've been hunting used bookstores for them. Very inspiring. Happy New Year, Gretel and Eric!

Hi Matt,

I'm a new fan and fellow illustrator. I've really enjoyed reading your old posts and will be following your blog regularly through out the New Year.
