My 11-yr-old son has discovered Russ Cox, a wonderful illustrator. You can see his work at Smiling Otis Studio.
[Yes, Mike Allegra (HeyLookAWriterFellow), Otis was one of Russ’s cats. They’re everywhere! And BTW, a mouse snuck into our pantry and tore into the brown sugar, dried beans, and pancake mix. I’m thinking we’ve got a diabetic mouse on our hands. Otis, where are you? We need you! Seriously, we’ll be getting out the live-trapper to capture this critter and let him loose in a neighborhood park.]
Anyway, I digress. My son wasn’t consciously thinking about one of Russ’s drawings when he drew this on a paper tablecloth at a restaurant last week:
If you look at Russ’s black and white work, you may find something that looks a bit like this guy.
Happy Illustrator Day! (just thought I’d make up a new holiday)
