A couple of weeks ago, I was SO very excited to hear that I had won a copy of Tad Carpenter's I Say, You Say Opposites book, especially as I'm a super huge fan of Tad's and have been following his work for many years!!
These are some of my favourite pieces* of his:
Two of the four posters Tad created for Conan O'Brien's 2011 Summer Concert Series. The other two were on Ke$ha and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes.
Tad's work for Adobe - an Illustrator CS6 How-To Guide of this illustration - "A Modern Day Venus". His guide showcased some of the new features of Illustrator CS6. Such amazing colour use!
In collaboration with agency BrandCory, Tad created and illustrated the "flavour monsters" on the Snapple Half 'N Half Packaging. So fun!
And here's some pictures of the book I won :)
The book arrived in an awesome hand-made envelope held together by super fun illustrated tape! Tad was very kind to leave a lovely message in the book :)
Some spreads from the book - so fun, colourful and interactive!
Tad was also very kind to send these amazing cards along with the book!
Not just super fun and beautifully illustrated, the books are interactive and encourage kids to learn through prediction and repetition.
Along, with the I Say You Say books, Tad also has another new book out, entitled "Sad Santa".
