Soup Illustration

“If I put something
in the water,
I can make Birthday Soup.
All my friends like soup.”
– Quote from Little Bear by Else Holmelund Minarik
– Illustration by me, inspired by Maurice Sendak
I did this illustration (ink and watercolor on paper) for an upcoming soup post (thanks to everyone who shared a post of a soup recipe – soup post is planned for Wednesday), and later this month I plan to do a post on book illustrators.

Do you have a favorite illustrated book or illustrator? Please leave the name in the comments. Thanks!

  • Sendak, Leora and soup–perfect combo! Nice illustration, for sure. [I just bought at our library store the book: Blue Moon Soup, a Family Cookbook by Gary Goss, Jane Dyer. Its wonderfully illustrated and tho its written for kids to be able to help, the recipes are look so delicious.] Happy Monday!

    • Thanks – I’ll have to look for Blue Moon Soup.

      Children’s books are often great ways to learn something new – we got an easy and delicious chocolate cake recipe out of a kids’ science book.

  • Even though the weather here reverted back to summer, your wonderful illustration puts me in the mood for a nice bowl of hearty vegetable soup! 🙂

  • Great illustration. Great book, Stone Soup is a favorite of mine, and my daughter’s favorite book, which she now reads to my granddaughter, Emily. She also reads her Little Bear’s Friend, whose name is Emily.

  • Hello Leora, thanks for visiting my Ruby Tuesday.
    My favourite illustrated book is “Little Bear” by Jane Hissey. I used to read it to my kids when they were little, and we’d do all the voices, and they’d play lots of little bear games. Boo Hoo , I’m getting all nostalgic now!
