The Got Story Countdown is where we share tips for children's book illustrators.
We focus on items relevant to the hearts and minds of children's story-telling artists and their partners —editors, authors, art director/designers, and their cheerleaders.
We invite published illustrators and their partners (editor, art director/designer, author, or other associates) to answer questions about their process.
You are welcome to join in, as long as you stay on topic. Got Story?
