Pictures bring a story to life. Illustrations give the reader a clear view of the characters and the action that is taking place. That is why it is so important to find the right artist for your book. The illustrator has a very important job; he/she has to take your idea and turn it into a bright and colorful drawing that expresses exactly the idea you had in mind when you wrote the words. It must be a close collaboration of both the artist and the writer. Today, I am working with the illustrator for my first storybook, Twig Toad's Terrible Trouble. He has read the book and I have given him my vision for the illustrations. Now, it's his job to turn those ideas in wonderful pictures that kids will enjoy seeing as they read the story about an adorable little toad named Twig. Keep reading future posts to find out more about my upcoming book.
