Jingle Bells illustrated by J.P. Miller
Take a look at these adorable smiling faces filled with holiday cheer!
J.P. Miller’s illustrations for Kathleen N. Daly’s Jingle Bells (1964) are just so festive and inspirational! The story is a nice twist on the old holiday tune, and is about a sleigh full of animals that help Santa when he needs it the most. I love Miller’s use of color and texture to achieve different values, and his depiction of animals are always so whimsical. Did you notice they’re all smiling with sweaters on?
Yummy flaming turkey ball!
In addition to illustrating Jingle Bells, J.P. Miller has also illustrated other Golden Book classics such as The Little Red Hen, The Wonderful House, and The House that Jack Built. To find out more about J.P. Miller’s life and work, check out the article “Remembering J.P. Miller” at Cartoon Brew.
