It was a thrill to talk with Travis Jonker of The Yarn podcast about my new picture book One Boy Watching. Listen here.
I've been a fan of The Yarn podcast since I began my journey creating children's books. Travis and Colby have interviewed some amazing authors, and each episode has new insights into the process of making a book.
One Boy Watching started with the image of a boy at a bus stop on a foggy autumn morning, waiting for the headlights of a big yellow bus. By sketching the Kansas countryside and revisiting memories of long childhood bus rides, a story took shape. This month I'll be sharing more process picture and final art from One Boy Watching. It's out this month from Chronicle Books. Find it at your favorite local bookstore or online wherever you get your books!
