Piet Grobler

The South African illustrator gave a talk about his work at uni a couple of days ago and I've just been looking at his work online. During the talk he showed us a video I think he said his brother helped him make of his book Het vogeltjies ABC  (Little bird's ABC) and it was so funny and charming! Piet uses inks and watercolours to get a beautiful lightness in his work, just perfect for the children's books he makes. Here is a tiny snippet for you to enjoy, there seemed to be a bit of theme of farting, pooping and burping birds, so it wasn't too cutesy!
