The beautiful Fall Guide cover illustration is “Mani’s Foxes” by Lindsey Yankey, from her children’s book Sun and Moon.
Lindsey grew up in rural Kansas playing outside, painting, drawing, and playing sports. She studied Illustration at the University of Kansas and is currently living in Lawrence, KS, with her family and their jungle of house plants. She finds inspiration in nature, animals, books, people and traveling. Her illustrations are made with a variety of materials. She loves the mouthwatering juiciness of oil paint, the independence of watercolor, the history of found paper, the simplicity of pencil and pen, and all the rabbit holes that are revealed by carving linoleum block to create pattern and repetition. Making children’s books is her way of combining all her loves.
