Recently got a hand-me-down book by Richard Scarry. I'd forgotten how much I loved this illustrators work as a child. I loved how he made all of his animals dress up as people going around doing everyday things. I look at the illustrations today and realized why I probably enjoy drawing anthropomorphic animals. When I was a child I never questioned why a pig would be dressed human like and on the next page just be a pig in a pigsty. I get a chuckle out of it. Here's a link for more info on Richard Scarry.
