The Real Deal about Visual Storytelling with Laurent Linn, Part One

MUPPET IN THE HOUSE! You all should know by now that Laurent Linn worked for the Muppets for about eleven years starting when he was seven years old. Even though he's now a seasoned art director for Simon & Schuster, he can still speak Cookie Monster (and yet he doesn't follow Sesame Street tweets!)

Muppet talk aside, Laurent started with a mini-slide show of hypothetical good and bad illustrator postcard art samples using some famous artists.

For example, Renoir is the bomb, but his paintings don't leave you wondering what will happen next,

say like John Tenniel's illustrations for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
