White Space

Graphic designers are masters at white space and I think recently it has caught on even more. Personally, I think it's a reflection of our need to clear our minds...de-clutter our lives. It gives us time to rest and time to focus.

I, too, have fallen in love with white space. Some picture books work well with a lot of white space. However, none that I have illustrated seemed to work that way. So I decided to do a few pieces that reflect my desire to leave more white space. I hope you like the result. (I have 4 right now and I'll post one each day - and I hate to have to say it but, please do not use this image elsewhere.)
