Before I left London, the delectably doodly site kidscandoodle asked me to debut a new 'Drawn' interview. Here's a sneak peek of just one answer. See the rest here!
Then - here I am in Brooklyn, looking at downtown Manhatten...
|Tiz and Ott make their marks on the door of Bank Street Book Store!|
|Never worked with so many pre-schoolers as at Bank Street. We all went dot dot dot with Tiz and Ott!|
|A carpetful of crayons. "Ott could paint a cloud with his eyes closed"|
After my own booksigning - what a delight to catch up with the hugely talented author-illustrator Tim Miller in the crowd - and have him sign his books for me!
When I last saw him in the illustrator gathering at the 2014 SCBWI New York conference, he was 'aspiring'. But I knew when I saw his work he had what it takes and now he has no less than 4 books in the bag - first of which are his great illustrations to the comical Snappsy the Alligator who did not ask to be in this book (written by Julie Falatzo). I treasure this book! Exciting too to get an advance copy of Tim's debut book as both author and illustrator - Moo Moo in a Tutu out in early 2017 and glimpse another beautiful book to be published by the innovative Brooklyn press Enchanted Lion.
Enough for now - more of the week in Brooklyn coming next!
