This year Brian Floca the illustrator of Locomotive will be visiting our school this May. The librarian is hosting this amazing illustrator at our school and since this year we fused our curriculums and student learning I just finished up an awesome lesson on illustrative styles and techniques. If you are not familiar with his work, you should check out his books, they are wonderful!
2nd graders viewed and discussed the different perspectives he uses in his illustrations, the realistic colors, and the amazing factual information he added at the end of the book about locomotives and it's working parts!
Hope you enjoy and are inspired by these beautiful drawings they did!
