I discovered Japanese illustrator Hitomi-Murakami last year thanks to Hazel Terry's posts about her beautiful illustrations in these children's books. Needless to say, I fell in love.
I think this series of Alpaca prints is a wonderful way of introducing you to her work. I would have loved to have seen this exhibition and very much enjoy following her on Flickr (great children's art workshops!) and visiting her website and little shop.
