How to be a Children’s Book Illustrator

How to Be a Children’s Book Illustrator is the blog creation of Mark G. Mitchell. According to the “About Me” page:  “The blog features interviews with children’s illustrators and offers insights on painting with traditional and digital mediums.”

I’m someone who never made it beyond stick figures and tulips in art, so I’m fascinated with the illustration side of publishing. Visual artists are magicians and I am in awe of their talents. Mark’s blog offers a glimpse into the artist’s world.

Recently he featured videos about the work of Caldecott Medal Winner Brian Selznick, author/illustrator of The Invention of Hugo Cabret and an interview with cartoonist, comics artist-author, web designer Erik Kuntz who drew a dog every day for a year and is the mastermind behind the web comic Hex Libris.
