Happy Birthday Hungry Caterpillar!
Many happy returns (just in time...) to the Hungry Caterpillar (or may I call you "The Very"...) who is forty today. I had to mark the occasion. This is a favourite of mine and one of the earliest books and pieces of illustration I can remember from my childhood (many people must also share this memory) and I'm sure it partly responsible for what I'm doing now... so thank you Mr. Carle, may your scissors never blunt, and to the VHC may you never be completely sated.
Possibly a bit tenuous a link to illustration friday's 'subtract' topic (?)... but the caterpillar did subtract a lot of little bits out of all of those foods... hope you enjoy the tribute
Apologies to anyone who has been kind enough to keep popping by the blog but found it at a standstill. I've been really busy over the last few weeks on many other things but the blog should be back on track from here on in... ta muchly for your patience :)
