A few months ago, I was asked by my former teacher and illustrating guru Mary Jane Begin to come and visit with Providence, RI radio station WHJJ. It was a total blast, but I am really embarassed with the conditon of my voice. I had just come down with a cold, so the nasal is in full force! Mary Jane brings up some very important issues with pubishing today, regarding the influence of new technology and electronic versions of books. I'll stay positive and say that for childiren's picture books, the physical-ness of reading can never be replaced.
Take a listen if you want to hear more, and to hear some call-ins from fellow illustrators Grace Lin and Jarret Krosoczka.
Just don't judge me by the honkity honk honk of the voice!
