Steve WalkerWhy did you choose to submit your particular piece of art?
Of the pieces I submitted, the one selected for the show told the most story in one drawing.
What does being part of SCBWI mean to you?
SCBWI is an opportunity to meet other artists and writers who cherish the format of children's books as I do.
What is your favorite picture book from childhood?
I love the deceptive simplicity of Ernest Shepard's drawings, but I think my favorite book from my childhood was My Father's Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett and illustrated by her stepmother, Ruth Chrisman Gannett (1948).
Fun fact: Steve also builds custom cars that have appeared on TV. Learn more, and see more images, on STQRY here.
