Garth Williams Inspired

This week I was inspired by a 1958 edition from Golden Press called "Three Bedtime Stories" which was illustrated by Garth Williams. He is probably best-known for illustrating the "Little House" books and "Charlotte's Web". It appears that he used watercolor and colored pencil for the illustrations in this book. In one of the stories, "The Three Little Pigs", the rotund little pigs are dressed in human clothing. I tried to create a character using Mr. Williams' style and one of my favorite animals.


  1. Nice job of creating a vignette with white space! Very sweet illustration. Great gesture!

  2. He's gorgeous! You've done Garth Williams proud!
