Indulgence that may help spike up your creativity.
Hiding in the kids’ books section. Seriously – give it a try. You will be amazed with how wonderful some illustrations are. Well, when you write for a 3-year-old, you have to capture their attention without all the wonderful wordsmithing. This is where the visuals win the show.
Illustrations by Olga Dugina for “One Thousand and One Nights” hardcover.
Janell Cannon illustrations, including “Verdi“.
Jan Brett’s illustrations for “The Mitten“. I have to give props to the Russian tale…
And the coolest book by David Wiesner “Art & Max“.
King of illustration: Adam Rex an his “Tree Ring Circus“.
Leave fear behind. Be a kid again. I did my best work with crayons on my parents’ wallpapers! Indulge!
