Picture Book Inspirations will be a destination for the ways in which picture books inspire me, projects which I take on after reading picture books, writing and art projects which I hope may some day be picture books and news.
What I hope to feature on the blog:
Art Criticism – In order to appreciate picture books it is helpful to have some background in art appreciation. I will be posting mini-lessons to help us all become more adept at talking about the art.
Guest Writers – I don’t have any lined up yet, but I hope to have some guest writers post about what inspires them
Techniques – Know how those illustrations were made? If you answered no, you are not alone. I will be posting information about the process of making illustrations. Hopefully with photos and videos.
Writing Challenges – Information about writing challenges I am taking part in and ones that you can take part in too.
Drawing Challenges – Same as for Writing Challenges
Current Events – articles, events, congratulations, kudos, sympathy.
Other stuff that I have not yet dreamed about.
I hope you will come and join me there. The welcome mat is out. I've just moved into the site, so it will be a while before the curtains are up. You're welcome to join me there anytime.
