I was finally able to make a bit of a dent in my Google Reader this weekend, as it's getting very out of control. While catching up on one of my favorites-designworklife-I came to learn of this fabulous website that archives the work of Louis Slobodkin, a beloved author/illustrator. He illustrated one of my most favorite stories from childhood-The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes. I love the light, sketchy quality of his work.

Trick or Treat by Louis Slobodkin, 1959, Macmillan
