Anyway, while I've been researching for this brief, I've been looking at what's in the market now, and illustrators/artists who use Christmas as one of their themes in their work. I've really started to look forward to Christmas now, so I can't wait Christmas to get here! (I've even got a countdown on the wall of our living room!).
Theses are some of the illustrators I have been looking at:
Above: Betsy LePlatt "Joyful Elves"
Above: Kerry Meyer "Letters to Santa"
Above: Chloe Inkpen "Zoe and Beans: Zoe's Christmas List"
Above: Emily McCann 'Angels'
