This week I've been looking at the illustrators Leonard Baskin (bottom 2 images) and Charles Keeping (top 5) for inspiration, both are extremely well-known; Baskin for his Ted Hughes illustrations and Keeping for the Highwayman and Beowulf. Mack recommended that I look at them for some inspiration so I found a few books in the library with some images that I liked. I've seen some of their work before without knowing who it was by and I think I can see that I've been influenced by them before. I love the strong line detail that Charles Keeping uses and lines are a common theme in my own work. I also think the colours that both use are beautiful.
