Grateful for the KIRKUS interview Julie Danielson did with Margarita Engle and I about the creation of DRUM DREAM GIRL. She is a fantastic writer who interviews and features the work of authors and illustrators at her blog Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. This is a children’s literature blog focused on illustration and picture books-something I am passionate about. In a 2011 interview at Seven Impossible Things I had the chance to chat with Jules and had a lot of fun talking about my take on children’s book illustration. This blog is such a great resource and I really enjoy reading about the approach of other illustrators.
