Meet Picture Book Report.
Hello and welcome to Picture Book Report! I do hope you are well. We are pretty excellent. Now, we have a lot to get through this week, so please do get comfortable, adjust your focus, and enjoy the wonders we have in store for you this week and beyond.
We are launching Picture Book Report as an experiment of sorts– fifteen illustrators creating a new scene from their favorite books every month, posted one per day for three weeks! Think about that– that’s half a month of brand-new content, every month! That’s crazy, and beautiful, and honestly the idea swells me with love and gratitude for all the people involved.
This week is a bit of a primer, to whet your whistles and get you acquainted. Every day this week I will share three illustrators from the group and try and let them speak a bit about their books of choice and why they picked them. Each post (fingers crossed) will be accompanied by a ‘bookplate’ that will showcase a taste of their talent and style, and let you know when their first illustration goes up. (You can also look at the schedule page if that helps!) Next month I will add to the content with character sketches, inspiration ideas for my project, and if other folks have time they will try that too. It’s going to be exciting. Are you ready?
