The Attic #14 Cynthia Amrine

Hello, my friends, a brand new year comes with a brand new issue of The Attic! I hope you all had a fun and lovely entrance to the new year!

Here’s what I got for you, another mysterious children illustrator, a picture of two best friends, a heaven and hellish ad, a lovely mountain-ish poster and a fun picture book of strange sights!

An illustrator: Cynthia Amrine

Cynthia Amrine is another mysterious illustrator whose info I couldn’t find.

I came across her work with this collection of Posters made to teach children how to use a library. These cute characters stole my heart.

I know, super cute, huh? I particularly love the limited palette and also love the way she used space. All in all, it’s a super nice finding and I feel like if I’ve found a big treasure!
