Right now I am a bit influensed by the illustrator Elsie Wrigley. I have two small “simple” childrens books by her, that I think is lovely illustrated. “Skogsmusen”/ “The little Woodmouse” and “Dagen när igelkotten vaknade” / “Wake up Hedgehog”, printed in the Pixi-serie by Carlsen. My copies are from 1978-79.
I like the contrast between the very nice inked drawings in the foreground, with all the small dots, strokes and exact lines, and the non-inked backgounds. It is obvious she loves to paint nature and flowers, it looks great and the colours are soft and nice.
Please feel free to tell if you know something about her career as an artist and illustrator. I have tried to find some information about here, but failed, I can only see that she has made a lot of more books.
