Here’s what I will be talking about…
The Perfect Marriage: Illustration and Text in Picture Books
This presentation will discuss successful elements used in creating a picture book relating to both the illustration and text, whether you are an author, illustrator, or author/illustrator. Picture books consist of two parts, the text and the illustrations, both are equally important and dependent on each other. What makes a successful marriage between the two? As and author, what should you keep in mind when writing your manuscript for a picture book? As an illustrator, how do you read in between the lines to find the secondary story beyond the text itself? As an author/illustrator, how do you keep a constant balance between the text and pictures to create a successful book? All of these questions are key in writing and/or illustrating your picture book.
