Monsters and Legends
A children's book? Yes, you see correct! When I see the inspiring illustration I just need to take a closer look! Children books are a great resource for illustration ideas and styles. Don't be afraid to browse through children's books. If you're an illustrator I can't imagine any better book area that is more exciting to me.
Of course, I read "normal" books according to my age, but still, I am always curious to explore other illustration styles and playful book designs. Try this out! Go to the bookstore and check out store sections you would usually avoid. Or go on a hunt just for playful books and illustrations. Just for the seek of beautiful art to find.
