I have finally managed to take the time to post some original artwork from The Day It All Blew Away on Etsy. Yes, some of it was sold at my show at Collage Collage, but there is still lots left. So, should you or your loved ones be in need of some original illustrations from a published Children’s Book, look no further! Reasonably priced and dimensions that are easy to frame. Would make a pretty cool present I think. Especially if you buy the book to go along with it!
Hi! I am Lisa Cinar, a writer, illustrator and overall Fan of Picture Books! This here blog serves as a way for me to catalog, and share my fascination with the art of picture book illustration.
I am now also teaching a class on Illustration for the Continuing Education Department at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. This blog also serves as a supplement for this class and to post Homework assignments. Here's to hoping you will get as much out of it as I will. Enjoy.

Recommended Books on Illustration and Visual Storytelling
These are Books I recommend as supplementary books for my Children's Picture Book Illustration Class I teach in the Continuing Studies Department at Emily Carr University of Art & Design.
Should you wish to buy these books, I strongly encourage you to purchase them at your local independent book store instead of from Amazon. Our local bookstores are going out of business and need your support!
