The Marvelous Mrs Lynne Chapman

Meet Lynne Chapman, an extremely talented and prolific illustrator from the UK. I originally stumbled across Lynne's work while looking through http://www.urbansketchers.com/ where Lynne posts very frequently. I've been hooked ever since. Not only is Lynne a very accomplished illustrator with oddles of books under her belt, she also is a prolific sketcher and is very busy with school visits and gallery shows. The thing that inspires me about Lynne the most though, is that with all her success, she always finds a way to give back to the rest of her peers. Her web site and blog are filled with wonderful tips and advice and she is always open to share her experiences with other artists. Just look at some of the topics that she has blogged about in the past. Many of them include video clips that are wonderful to watch.

Make sure you swing by Lynne's blog or website to look at her incredible body of work. I for one, am always looking forward to her next post of her blog.
