As a way to perpetuate readers’ personal connections with book creators, we at TeachingBooks.net have periodically featured original artwork created by some of the illustrators with whom we’ve worked.
We like imagining that when these great illustrators aren’t working on books, they are feeding their own creative spirits by making art just for the fun of it.
Please enjoy this collection of non-book artwork generously shared by five professional illustrators.
Cartoons made via copperplate etching by Arthur Geisert
Cats made using tin cans, bottle caps, & rivets by Denise Fleming
Collages made with magazine ads & watercolor by Bryan Collier
Travel sketches created with pens & pastels by David Small
Stained glass windows created with sea glass by Ashley Bryan
