charlotte koopman

a great artist to watch is our friend charlotte koopman. she makes the most amazing drawings, with funny characters. you can see more of her work on this website. she's working on a book about tomatoes and we can't wait untill it's finished. we have some really nice children's books, but the first one she will publish is going to be our favorite- that's for sure!
charlotte also made our logo!
