Picture Book Month - Illustrator's Process
What is your favorite part of a picture book - the story or the pictures?
I love them both. With picture books, you can't have one without the other.
Well, I guess you can. There are wordless picture books. But, being an author, I tend to like picture books with words. How about you?
Words and pictures share top billing in my opinion.
I recently found on You Tube videos made by author/illustrator, Will Hillenbrand.
I particularly liked his video on the process of illustrating the picture book, Down on the Farm. Click here to watch.
Click here for a partial reading of the finished book.
Want to see more of his You Tube videos. Click here for a listing.
I think it is helpful for us wanna be picture book writers to see the process of writing and illustrating the picture book.
Mr. Hillenbrand has a great website. You can go here to visit and look around.
