Tina & Carson Kügler

 kuglerstinaANDcarson_authorphoto

TINA and CARSON KüGLER both grew up in Milwaukee, influenced by Mary Nohl’s garden of fantastical creatures. They blossomed into professional artists and created three rather loud creatures of their own. After years of dreaming about how to turn Mary’s wonderland into a book, IN MARY’S GARDEN (HMH), Tina and Carson combined traditional and digital collage elements to capture the spirit of Mary’s art. The Küglers currently reside in Los Angeles, where Carson is a storyboard supervisor for Nickelodeon Animation, and Tina is a full-time children’s book illustrator.

The Busy Librarian’s (aka Matthew Winner) “Let’s Get Busy” podcast: Link

Watch Connect Read blog book trailer premiere and interview with Mr Schu: Link

“This quiet, engaging offering celebrates the artist’s vision and her idiosyncratic work.”
—Booklist
“The illustrations combine watercolor with digital painting, collage, and vintage papers, resulting in a soft palette and an uncomplicated, accessible drawing style. Children will delight in the whimsy of the art pieces and their placement in the garden as well as the participation of Mary’s dogs, Sassafras and Basil, in the discovery process.”
—School Library Journal

“The Küglers use watercolor, digital painting, collage and vintage papers to portray Mary’s world and sculptures…A friendly chronicle of an offbeat artist.”
—Kirkus

“Chalky mixed-media collages are punctuated by items of significance…a quiet homage.”
—Publishers Weekly

“The authors embellish their picture-book biography of artist Mary Nohl (1914–2001) with touches of whimsy…The illustrations—digital collages of scratchy, affectionate paintings on an assortment of papers—mirror this sense of wonder.”
—Horn Book Magazine

 

“An appealing and kid-friendly introduction to Nohl’s art.”
—Bulletin

  1. Carson!

    Jay Wall here.

    In Mary’s Garden is a beautiful book. Props to both you and Tina!

    Can’t believe you abandoned your Manitowoc roots in the bio though!

    No Key to the City for you!

    🙂

What are we doing this weekend? READING! Art by Joyce Wan. Follow Joyce at @joycewanbooks Joyce writes: Hi everyone! Didn’t mean to dissapear on you. I got my voice back last week but have been struggling a bit to work on meeting some deadlines while my daughter is home (for at least another 4 weeks 😱)! I do have some exciting news for fans of the picture books PUG MEETS PIG and PUG AND PIG TRICK-OR-TREAT that I illustrated by Sue Gallion. There is a third book in the works featuring some new friends! Here is a sneak peak of them on a poster I created to celebrate the new book. Hope you are hanging in there. I am thinking about you all and I plan to post more videos very soon. Stay well! ❤️ . . . . . . . . #kidlit #kidlitart #wahmlife #wahm #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofig #illustratorsofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #pugmeetspig #pugsofinstagram #pigsofinstagram #picturebook #picturebooks #booklove #picturebooksofinstagram #joycewan

Just a friendly reminder to reach out to someone you love! Art by Ellen Stubbings. Follow Ellen at @ellen_stubbings . Ellen writes:Hope everyone is keeping safe and well 💕 I made this more of a reminder to myself but I think it might be handy for other people too! I’m mostly dealing with isolation ok but I find I’ve been missing friends and family so giving someone a call can be a good mood boost! It’s also nice to check in on your pals. I get so wrapped up in work sometimes that I forget but I’m determined to do better 😤 . . #illustration #illustrator #illustrationartists #illustratorsoninstagram #illustrated #illustrationoftheday #illustrate #illustrations #illustrators #illustration_art #illustratorsofinstagram #illustrationart #illustration_daily #illustrationdaily #illustrationaday #illustrationartist #cuteart #instaartist #instaart #instaillustration #instaillustrator #art #artistsoninstagram #artistoninstagram #artist #procreate #digitalart #digitalartist #kidlitart #ellenstubbings
