As a children’s book illustrator and author, I find myself in the studio drawing, scanning and coloring each day. I think of characters, line width, color options, page sizes, stories to try out… and more. Much of the process taps the “adult” in me. I sometimes fight that! I think it is more important to keep the “child” in me front and center during the process. How better to connect with my “little” audience than to get on their level. The results? Watching them laugh when I read them my books.
