I love Chris Rashka's art, his wild, genius mind, and his cool, calm, gentle nature. I love how he captures mood and tone with a few brushstrokes and how he experiments endlessly with color and shapes. When he did the illustrations for Fishing in the Air, I was blown away that he had been able to render visually the very abstract process of how we imagine. His cover for Granny Torrelli Makes Soup captures the swirly relationships in that book. If you ever have a chance to hear him speak, go. I think he will fascinate you.
