Daniel Egneus is my favourite illustrator. I was introduced to his work by his sister, Sussi, who lives and works here in New Zealand. Daniel has the frustrating ability to make it all look so easy and, in spite of the child-like use of line and restrained colour it is obvious he is in complete command of his craft. I see he has launched a book (video), I don't understand much French but it could be worth ordering.
