Scott Spinks

Scott Spinks is a very talented children's illustrator, the last few posts on his blog really caught my eye. In particular, the piece he did for Illustration Friday a couple of weeks ago for the word "Return" (he is selling the print titled "Waiting to Meet Dad").

In his words: "When I saw the word, “return” I immediately thought of the thousands of US soldiers who have returned home after fighting in a war. Many of them, meeting their children for the very first time. Then, I thought of those who never return."

This is quite a thoughtful drawing and evokes emotion with the small details like the drooping bow and carving on the tree, to the photograph held in the daughter's hand, all set in a scene that would otherwise seem quite perfect and cheery.
