Author of Train’s Go, SWAP!, and Shoemaker Extraodinaire, Steve Light effortlessly shows his illustrative range and fitting imagination in the world of children’s books. I happened across this artist by strange accident as I was not really expecting to find something so boldly beautiful tucked away in plain sight, surrounded by other book illustrators, at my local library.
I was immediately attracted by the strong, energetic vibe of the pen strokes, not just the use of colors. The color palate only help to enhance what the artist clearly possessed – magic.
