KINDERGARTEN THEATER AHOY!

And the only problem with watching adorable children pretend to be a mouse and a sun bear and a slow loris and pretend to fall down a hole and then all call out "Oh no!" would be... not getting to see the excellent Eric Rohmann illustrations. These are illustrations executed in a greeny earthtone palette, dappled with filtered sunlight and stroked with brushy highlights.

I like Eric Rohmann as much as the next sentient mammal (which is to say a lot), but this is his best work so far. The reduction print process used here creates a grainy, semi-transparent texture, and the overlapping layers look just a little like woodcuts.
