Eric Carle, of course, for the gorgeous illustrations. Sandra Boynton for board books that are a joy to read instead of a bore. And Lynley Dodd for the humourous illustrations and the wonderfully rhythmic text.
Here, briefly, are the author-illustrators I mentioned there.
I agree strongly with Sandra Boynton, Eric Carle, Lynley Dodd, and Mick Inkpen.
We have a couple of Nick Butterworth's books as well, but I don't find them quite so compelling.
We also love Jan Brett, Barbara Reid, Marie Louise Gay, Tomie de Paola, Holly Hobbie and Ezra Jack Keats.
And I should have mentioned Lois Ehlert for her wonderful collages.
Also Martin Waddell, especially his book Owl Babies. To me it is perfect in every detail, and our children learned it off by heart, and loved to act it out.
Our newest favourite from England is Lauren Child, who is very funny, and has a very modern style of collage and ink sketches. Her text uses many different fonts for emphasis and to add emotional impact - very effective once you get used to it, and fun for early readers.
-Jarrett J. Krosoczka-- great humor, energy, and joy in all his work.
-Meghan McCarthy-- is doing some amazing work in non-fiction picture books. Aliens Are Coming about the War of the Worlds broadcast is particularly good.
-Yuyi Morales and Ana Juan both create such lush, textural, and sometimes surreal illustrations I return to their work again and again just to just to enjoy their views of the world
-Brian Selznick-- I can spend hours with his illustrations-- and keep an eye on his Invention of Hugo Cabret for next awards season... Caldecott? Newbery? Both?
And digging back to my childhood, in addition to Sendak, I remain attached to Tomi Ungerer sometimes dark and scary, always with a good sense of humor... The Three Robbers and Crictor remain particular favorites.

Another author/illustrator I can think of is Chris Van Allsburg. I love his illustrations.
(edited for spelling)
As someone mentioned above, Ruth Chew wrote and illustrated hers. The internal illustrations (charcoal, I see mentioned) are probably drawn on Ingres paper (in comparing the fine grooves to illustrations in a drawing book that state what is Ingres paper. The fine horizontal or vertical grooves match). The covers look like watercolor and pen/ink lines?
Series: Dorrie the Little Witch by Patricia Coombs
>10 Jenson_AKA_DL: I have most of the Serendipity books in my library. :)
>20 nymith: Ruth Sanderson's family co-owned a factory where I used to work, and some of her paintings (illustrations for, I believe Heidi and The Secret Garden) were hung in the office/lobby area. They were awesome. Apparently she lives in the same city as I do, and has studio space here and has been at art events I've visited...and yet I've somehow managed never to meet her! :(
