Tressa from Tressa’s Wishful Endings hosts this meme every Friday. She is taking a short break from the meme, but I am still posting as often as I can. I use the meme to highlight some of my favorite illustrators.
Today I am featuring the amazingly talented Skottie Young!

How could anyone not love this guy’s artwork? It is so busy and full of action! Skottie really puts a lot of umph into his art. If his personality is anything like his illustrations, I bet he is a riot to hang out with!
If you want to experience Skottie Young’s artwork at it’s best, just check out the new Neil Gaiman book he illustrated called Fortunately, the Milk.
