My first children's book has hit the stores this past month and I can't tell you how excited I am. I have always been captivated by old fairy tales and distinctly remember my mom reading Jack and the Beanstalk to me as a child. So when Sterling Publishers gave me the chance to illustrate a retelling of it, I jumped at the opportunity.
It took me nearly 10 months to complete the illustrations, and it was a tremendous learning experience. For anyone out there looking to illustrate children's books I have to say that it is so much fun, but it is an incredible amount of work and requires a lot of planning and discipline (I also developed a caffeine addiction during the process). However, it is so rewarding to take on a big project and see it to the finish.
