It's Illustration Tuesday. There are so many places to go to be inspired. One of them is the wonderful Smithsonian Institution. But we don't have to go to Washington, of course. They have loads of resources on line. Thinking about African art as an influence on your own picture book art? (Or writing a story set in Africa?) They've got loads to see at the National Museum of African Art here. It "fosters the discovery and appreciation of the visual arts of Africa, the cradle of humanity." Beautiful...and so handy!
