Andrew Bannecker

Andrew Bannecker has won several awards and no wonder. His imagination is amazing and he captures the viewer in his own phantasy world.  

Below you'll find another, less known, illustrator who makes quite stunning illustrations Catherine Liu. Sometimes I cannot choose between young, upcoming artists and already established ones.......

Catherine Liu



Claire A Nivola

A perhaps less known illustrator; Claire A Nivola (b. 1947). Her illustrations are beautiful, telling a story in wonderful detail.


Maira Kalman

She was born in Israel (1949) but came to US at the age of four. She now lives in New York. I find her work sparkling, full of humour. Her illustrations tell a story and I just love her ABC book. 


Paul O Zelinsky

This American illustrator (b.1953) won the Caldecott medal in 1998.
