Most people outside of picture book publishing don’t that authors and illustrators almost never directly communicate throughout the entire book-making process—any and all discussions usually get filtered through a book’s editor. So as you can imagine Barb Rosenstock and I were VERY excited to finally “meet” in this video to unbox our finished copies of Otis and Will Discover the Deep and discuss our creative process for the book, including:
Where do the ideas come from?
How did you approach the manuscript / drawings?
What were your biggest challenges?
What are your favorite parts and why?
Otis and Will comes out in just one week on June 5th, 2018! Pre-order your copy now from wherever you buy your books, and I hope you enjoy my chat with Barb!
