Today I got home from #NY16SCBWI - the annual Winter Conference of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) - and I can't wait to write a bit more about that later this week. Until then I wanted to share my recent interview with Illustrator Doug Cushman. Among other things, we talked about the qualities he feels are important for an artist to have in order to be a successful illustrator for children's books.
This interview is part of a series highlighting the SCBWI presence at the Bologna Children's Book Fair. You can check out the interview with Doug, as well as other interviews in the series, at the Cynsations Blog.
