Designspiration: David Wiesner

I love children’s books and sometimes my jaw just drops to see the incredible illustrations that fill their pages. This illustration comes from the book “Flotsam” by David Wiesner.  It is an amazing story told only in pictures which are masterfully done in watercolor.  You are drawn into it through the beautiful depiction of one child’s beach vacation and his discovery of an underwater camera.  I have found that this book is a wonderful chance for children to use their own imagination and in the end no two have the same journey.
