Via this post from SFGirlbyBay today I found Michelle Blade's work. Oh so cool. They remind me a little bit of my favorite stories as a kid, the ones that were illustrated with really vibrant colors, but weren't doctored up to look fake or "babyish" (remember using that word? kids still use it these days, did you know that?) in anyway. I had a hard time picking which ones to share here, but if you like these, really you should check out here website, here.
