Our good friends Teresa and Aaron just got back from their European vacation and were nice enough to bring us a souvenir. They were in Amsterdam and said posters by this illustrator, Fiep Westendorp, were everywhere and they thought they might be cute for Oscar’s room. Boy have they got my number!
A trip to the Fiep Westendorp website reveals that the illustration above is Pluk and his red breakdown lorry and the second one is
Jip and Janneke and that there is going to be an
exhibition of Westendorp’s work this summer in Tokyo. There’s also a great timeline/biography that I need to go back and read through when Oscar’s not clammoring to get going. Love these little cuties!
