More about Bob:
'In a recent online interview, Drawn.ca suggested that "to say Bob Staake is just an illustrator is like saying 'The Beatles' were just a bunch of musicians; the title doesn't do the artist justice" and Publisher's Weekly commented that "Bob Staake's modern, crisp illustrations ... practically jump off the page."

Charmaine Lurch is an artist based in Toronto.
Please, note that due to a phone difficulty, the interview recording is now available at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/multiple-arts/2013/03/25/charmaine-lurch--artist-educator-illustrator
Charmaine’s work investigates, through a melding of sculptural and pictorial elements, themes of family, culture and the figure. An integration of mixed media and recycled objects, such as a window frame and an old iron chair, maximizes on the potential of metal wiring as a powerful means of expression. The line, whether represented by wire or paint, is a strong element in Charmaine’s work. It is the medium, embodying seduction and strength.
Charmaine holds a degree from Sheridan College and also studied at The Ontario College of Art & Design, and School of Visual Arts, in New York City. Her travels to Africa, Europe and Asia have greatly influenced her work, and her paintings have been exhibited and collected by private collectors around the world. Charmaine has a passion for children’s literature and a talent for bringing it to life on paper. She has illustrated and designed many children's books including textbooks and early readers. Her projects are inclusive of diverse populations and serve as enrichment and support for teachers.
