Little Lit Fest Blog Avery & Augustine The Week Of in Instagram August 31, 2016

Woo hoo! It’s a great week on Instagram. We love following along with all of our artists, because it makes it easy to take sneak peeks at what they are working on along the way. We get to honor their individual processes and get a little glimpse in the process. And not just artists–we also love to see what bloggers and more are up to. This week…we’ve been in on the action as well!

This past weekend, we were excited to support Avery & Augustine’s Little LitFest (#littlelitfest), which fosters community through the love of children’s literature. The attendees to the event packed sunny yellow suitcases with items from Lately Lily, Isabel Roxas, Scout Books, Sakura and Zig Zag City Guides, as well as our cards by author/illustrator, Jon Klassen, and illustrator, Christian Robinson.

And, spotted on Jon Klassen’s Instagram, we want ALL of these! We Found a Hat is due out on October 11th, and we will be first in line. His hand must be tired after all of that signing…

Plus, some inspiration from Anke Weckmann, who released another Sketchbook video on her Youtube channel. Makes us want to get to work!:

Carolyn Gavin’s sketchbook is a piece of art in and of itself. She took over Lilla Rogers’s Instagram this week, which got us even more excited for her brand new wrap design for Red Cap.

Artist News Roundup: Lizzy Stewart and Josie Portillo September 4, 2015

We had to pack in another Artist News Roundup this week because our buddies are busy little bees! Up next, are Lizzy Stewart and Josie Portillo.

Lizzy Stewart has two new pieces out (one for sale now, and one on pre-order). Check out Lizzy's new annual planner design for Little Otsu below, which can be found on their site, here. Produced each year by a different artist, we are so excited to see that Lizzy is in the hot seat for 2016.

“The tenth installment of the Little Otsu Annual Weekly Planner returns with all the great aspects from the previous volumes including more artwork from the wonderful London-based artist Lizzy Stewart! All the useful features you've come to expect from the Annual (undated monthly and weekly spreads, handy list pages, easy-to-use wire-o binding) are combined with the added charm of Lizzy's artwork, ranging from seaside landscapes to architecture to found objects to animals with a special emphasis this year on images from her travels. Each weekly spread features a different drawing so there's a new experience each week to add inspiration to organization.”

Plus pre-order her travel zine on her site, here, which will be shipping September 9th. If you can't get to Europe on your own, trust us, you will WANT to see it through the eyes of Lizzy Stewart.

“32 page, full colour zine of my sketchbook kept on a 12 day trip from Vienna via Croatia to Venice. Drawings, paintings, notes and doodles.”

Josie Portillo also shared some great work via her Instagram with a great illustration that highlights how Middlebury College has evolved since 1914. Such amazing work and intricate work. Keep sharing these, Josie!
