Don't you just love the illustrations found in most children's books? Susie Lee Jin does, too. In fact, after earning a BA in English and her elementary teacher certification at Duke University, she relocated to New York City and attended the School of Visual Arts' Master of Fine Arts in Illustration program. Susie and her husband Paul love living in NYC, where she works full-time as an illustrator and designer, as well as an aspiring children's book author. Along with her love of illustration, Susie is trying to learn Korean and Paul is working on grasping Thai. Here are a few books that Susie has illustrated. Her website is so cute, and I'm hoping to see more from Susie in the near future.

Happy Friday everyone!
