Below are a few of my favourite Sydney Smith illustrations. I am in awe of the beauty that he is constantly creating from his sunny studio in the Roy Building. Making it look easy.
The time I spent working at Beech Street Preschool allowed me to conduct an extensive survey of children’s literature and examine a ton of illustration styles. Mabel Murple, illustrated by Mr. Smith himself, had a strong hold on those young creative minds. They were constantly sketching their own version of Mabel and it was amazing to see first-hand how strongly and positively they were influenced by his drawings.
