coffee with oliver jeffers | thank you internet!

A few weeks ago, I posted about Illustrator/Artist Oliver Jeffers and in my post I said, that Oliver is on my ‘list of people I’d like to have coffee with someday’. And that’s what we did this morning! I had no idea that Oliver had moved to the US and works out of a studio not far from mine, in Brooklyn. Wheee! He showed us (Jennifer, my lovely office mate and reason why I found out about Oliver) some of his most recent (and top secret) work. What a creative young fella! Oliver is mostly known for his picture books, but have you ever had a peek at his site? It’s filled with so much creativity and talent, I find it quite humbling. I love this painting called: Portrait with Interplay between inner and outer (the weight of the world) (#14 in art)


If you have little kids and are not familiar with Oliver’s work, make sure to pick up some of his books: Lost and Found, “How To Catch A Star“, “The Incredible Book Eating Boy

Oliver, it was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you internet!

  1. Jeffers? In Brooklyn? The world has collapsed to a thin line. I’m a big fan of the painting “Logic with a choice of beverage”

  2. I’m a huge Oliver Jeffers fan since I saw his work in Advanced Photoshop magazine in Jan this year. You are soooo lucky!
