Sometimes it takes hours to find something you want on the internet, sometimes you log in and it just hits you in the face. *myeysarestillwatering*
About 3 minutes ago, I came across a blog post by Sarah Andreacchio on Alice and Martin Provensen. http://happy-mitou.blogspot.com/
While you might not know their names, you do know their illustration. Alice worked for Walter Lantz studio, the creators of Woody Woodpecker, while Martin created Kellogs Tony the Tiger!
You know? "They're GGGrrrreat!"
Anyway I would recomment whiling away this summers day leafing through/rolling past these lovely images by them both.
