Welcome to the #arttips blog! The purpose of this blog will be to provide insight into the professional practice of illustration.
I'll expand on the ins and outs of children's book Illustration, from an art director's perspective.
It'll include visuals as teaching tools; the process of creating a cover; cover reveals; Q&A with other art directors and illustrators; postcard visuals showing what I keep and what I don't; best practices for illustrators; a bit of art history; reposts of other blogs; portfolio assignments for illustrators; and much more.
I don't want to over promise and under deliver; so I'll say that it will be imperfect, a little sporadic (depending on my schedule), and by no means a great work of literature.
But, if all goes well, we'll have fun. We'll learn. And we'll see how badly I need a copyeditor.
I hope by following this blog, you'll find useful information that will help your career. So let's get started.
