Illustrator Tasha Tutor passes

Doing research for a freelance design job, and came upon the news that a well-known illustrator by the name of Tasha Tutor had died on June 18th at the age of 92. Many of you may have already heard this news. Honestly, I had never heard of her until today. Kinda surprising since her latest book was published in 2003. (Wow, 87 and still drawing. We all should be so lucky!) I am going to head to the library this weekend to see if I can find some of her books. Should be inspiring!

This article was interesting.

Her family has a website as well.

Well Tom, I really want to thank you about this post, I have enjoyed the reading of the links and discovered this wonderful woman. Quite encouraging and inspiring!
I see she has illustrated one of my favourite books "The Secret Garden" in a delicious way.
Thank you again, Tom and also for your kind words about my work, I really appreciate it :)
