Every two weeks we'll try to connect to you a few of the amazing websites and blogs that are out there for illustrators. The first is Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, also known as 7-imp. This lovely blog, which focuses primarily on illustration and picture books, is crafted by Jules Danielson. Julie received her Master’s in Information Sciences with a focus on children’s librarianship. She has juried for the Society of Illustrators’ Original Art Award, as well as the BolognaRagazzi Awards for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair in Italy. She writes about picture books at the Kirkus website and provides occasional picture book reviews for BookPage. WILD THINGS, her book about children’s literature that was written with Betsy Bird and the late Peter D. Sieruta, will be published by Candlewick Press in 2014.
A good place to start: this week's interview of Aaron Becker, the author/illustrator of JOURNEY, one of the top books of the year. Check it out!
