my illustrator’s awesome! some day i hope to meet him
September 23, 2010
So i got the exciting news that the illustrator for CHARLIE JOE JACKSON’S GUIDE TO NOT READING is going to be JP Coovert!
We’re going to work very closely together to make sure his illustrations capture the tone of CJJ. It’s going to be a dynamic working relationship!
And I’ll probably never meet him.
Isn’t that wild? I guess that’s how it works in the children’s book business. Marriages between writer and illustrator might be made in heaven, but they’re not made in person.
It’s all good, though. We exchanged an email. And isn’t that how we ALL talk to each other these days?
