Artist News Roundup: Jon Klassen, Lizzy Stewart and Anke Weckmann

October 2, 2015

Happy October! Today, in celebration of FRIDAY, we're doing a roundup of some of our favorite illustrators in the Red Cap family: Anke Weckmann, Lizzy Stewart and Jon Klassen. Look below to see what great things our pals have gotten up to this past week:

Have you heard of Inktober? For the next 31 days, illustrators and artists across the globe will create one pen & ink drawing each day in honor of Inktober. We've loved looking at all of the work and were delighted to find our own Anke Weckmann is getting into the spirit. Check out her first ink drawing via her Instagram. Just awesome!

Also this week, we were so happy to see a new editorial illustration by Lizzy Stewart in the New York Times! Lizzy illustrated a book review for This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance! by Jonathan Evison. (The book looks pretty great too!)

Last but not least, the book trailer for The Nest by Kenneth Oppel with illustrations by Jon Klassen is now online! It makes the book look even spookier than we first imagined! Love it. Check the video out below, and don't forget to grab your copy here.

What a great week. Have a good weekend, everyone!
