The Illustrator Corner: Behind the Scenes - KIDPRESSROOM

Go behind the scenes and discover how some of your favorite books are illustrated. The Illustrator Corner (TIC) takes a look at book publication from a different perspective. See the words come to life through the images that leap off the pages, with every turn.

Writing a children’s book is one thing, but illustrating one is what truly brings the words to life. The Illustrator Corner wants you to involve you with the process and help you learn what it’s really all about.

If you’d like to learn the creative processes that illustrators go through to make both theirs and the author’s visions a reality, check out our new series:
