burst of beaden

when i grow up i want to do art like jon klassen. i know you arn't supposed to copy peoples' art but, hell...
these two are not exemplary of his full breadth of talent (go to his site), but i just love what he's doing with them. his work is minimalist, clean and he brilliantly combines words and images with cleverness, playfulness and precision.

It's been said that good artists copy, but great artists steal. So I say steal away...

Klassen definitely does great work.
