Let's Get Busy Podcast (#81) - Mac Barnett
This was a valuable interview for picture book writers, especially if you are a writer trying to understand how to leave space and collaborate with an (as yet to be determined) illustrator.
Mac Barnett: "The work that the illustrator does is story work, it's real story telling."
They also discussed the experience of reading aloud a book and how it is like a performance.
Let's Get Busy Podcast (#79) Kelly Light
Kelly Light was delightful to listen to, because of her passion and enthusiasm for illustrating. She talked about creating her recently released picture book debut Louise Loves Art. It was so interesting to hear about some of the artistic choices she made while creating the illustrations.
