Vintage Illustrated Cookie Monster Book Artwork by Joe Mathieu from 1977

I love vintage illustration artwork and some of the best comes from these drawings in old children's books.

Here is a set of artwork from the Sesame Street story Cookie Monster and the Cookie Tree.

The artwork in this book was illustrated by Joe Mathieu who actually did many books and drawings for Sesame Street.


The story in this book starts out with a witch in the forest who has a talking tree that grows cookies.

Of course, as you guessed from the title Cookie Monster finds the tree.

I really do dig the pencil outline style of this artwork.

And check out the drawing of the witch in the background above.

The action poses drawn in these illustrations are also what really appeals to me in this artwork.

Some of the other Sesame Street characters show up in the book drawings like The Count, Bert, Prairie, Grover, and Oscar the Grouch.
