01 May Member Spotlight: Children’s Book Illustrators
Since most of the country has been sheltering at home, those with children have found themselves taking on extra duties as an educator, kid wrangler, entertainers, and 24/7 kitchen staff. That means May is the perfect month to honor those professionals who more than once have saved the sanity of overwhelmed parents: children’s illustrators!
We contacted several of our Graphic Artist Guild members who work in children’s illustration, creating children’s books, craft books, video art, and even art for live performances. We asked each set of questions to find out how they got their start, and what keeps them going:
- Why did you become a children’s illustrator?
- What project are you most proud of? What do children learn or understand from it? Why is that important?
- What are you itching to draw or illustrate next?
- Tell us about your latest project. Where can it be purchased?
