How a Picture Book Begins

Have you ever wondered how an illustrator begins the pages of a picture book? Erin Hunter illustrator of The Great Divide, Multiply on the Fly and A Day on the Mountain gives us a sneak peek into her next project for Sylvan Dell A Day in the Deep – A Story of the animals that live in the depths of the ocean. Here Erin shows us how her paintings come to life, and the process she uses to create the detail of each creature.

  1. Fascinating! I didn’t realize/know that there were so many steps in making the creation of one illustration. Kudos to all your illustrators!
