Alexandra Boiger Illustrations

Sometimes, when I feel overrun with the fast pace and noise of life, I like to steal away to a quiet corner with a mug of spicy tea or hot chocolate and read a children’s book. It’s a great way to unwind and indulge in something low-tech that leaves you feeling delighted rather than drained. So on my trips to the library, I will often wander into the picture book aisles and pick something off the shelves – usually based on whether or not I like the cover illustration.

I just recently discovered the magical work of artist/illustrator Alexandra Boiger and highly recommend you check out some of her work. I especially enjoyed the book While Mama Had a Quick Little Chat with its cute story, retro cast of characters and the bright reds and blues Alexandra uses with such charming effect.

I contacted the super-nice Alexandra to ask if I could post some of her work and she kindly agreed. Here are two images from While Mama and two from another great book Thanks a LOT, Emily Post!
