Oliver Jeffers Takes Nerd+Art to a New Level

Oliver Jeffers

The Incredible Book Eating Boy is my new favorite bed time story (for reading to my two and four year old sons). I looked up the illustrator (Oliver Jeffers) the other day to discover that he, like me, could appreciate a little nerd with his art as evidenced by his uninhibited use of math (that’s right, math) as a design element in his illustrations and paintings. Sweet! I really loved his portfolio for the content, but the site itself also stands on its own. It’s simple, but really effective. Shows how sometimes less == more (a little more math for you).
