Here is another inspirational artist I grew up on, Gyo Fujikawa. One of the best!
The only book I still have is Fairy Tales and Fables, which all these pictures come from. However, I strongly remember many others such as Oh, What a Busy Day! and Babies (one of the first picture books to feature all races and cultures). She often illustrated things in chart style, little pictures with captions underneath... I've always loved that style, you can tell as I paint my own charts now!
