Fiep Westendorp




I paint (on the computer) the way a kid makes a figure out of clay. That is, I plunk down just about any shape, and then I push and prod it into looking like something. But I’ve noticed that just about everybody that I admire Draws. The Line is very important to the way they work.

Today Mo Willems posted a drawing by Fiep Westendorp. Her exaggerated use of line is wonderful, not to mention her silhouettes, graphic shapes, and colors.

That is so cute. That's what I call art.
