TGIF: Thank God for Illustration Friday – Marchpanepig

I have a confession to make…I still love reading children’s books. Well, I really just look at the pictures!

Anyway, my nephew and nieces are coming over today (with their mom, of course) and I thought it would be appropriate to share an illustrator for TGIF: Thank God for Illustration Friday that I’ve been saving for just the right day.

I discovered Gretel Parker over at Etsy, where her shop name is Marchpanepig. Gretel is a professional children’s book illustrator and has done work for Disney, Templar publishing and Star Bright Books among others.  Books she has worked on include the Princess’ Handbook and Pinwheel Days and you can see more of her work on her website.

In her Etsy shop she sells original works, prints and cards, which you can see examples of below.
