Oliver Jeffers. Oh yeah baby.

You must have heard of Oliver Jeffers.  You have, haven’t you? I say that like I’ve been in on the Jeffers secret from the beginning but I only found him through a blog a year or two ago. The interwebs are fabulous for things like that.  A random click and BINGO > a new artist to love and adore.

I have bought a bunch of his books since then.  Yes, I am a proper grownup … but the illustrations are just so fabulous I wanted to see them with my very own eyes. The stories are pretty cute too.

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
