Bill Peet










Lately I was looking at Bill Peet's unpublished sketches on his web site. Just amazing! His ability to blend his tremendous animal knowledge with tasteful design and entertaining storytelling is for me an incredible source of inspiration.

Hi Gabriele,

I am so pleased to have discovered your blog. I have heard great things about you for years and years, from Paul McQ and Gabe Hordos.

Beautiful stuff, man. I'll be sure to check back.

Hi Gabriele,

Greetings from freeeeeezing Munich!
Bill Peet is one of my favorites too, thanks for putting the link to his site on here. Hey, what Museum was the one here in Munich where you saw the Heinrich Kley sketches??? I saw Maurizio in Berlin just before Xmas - he looked well.

Give my greetings to everyone!

I'm a huge Peet fan! Just bought Wingdingdilly yesterday, now it is finally part of my collection, his animals are really wonderful, and there are some awesome poses of humans in that book. His stories always seem to have a AWWWW-HAA at the end, I've never finished a Peet book without feeling utterly amazed at his storytelling! Good Posts!

Thanks everybody for your nice words.

Martin- I saw your blog. I like what you're trying to do with the human figure.

Boris- Nico (Nicolas Marlet) is keep telling me that I draw that kind of eyebrows because I have the same. I hope he is not right!

Greg- The Museum is in Konigsplatz but I can't remember the name. It could be something like "State Graphic Museum".

Ov- I love your comics too!
