Starting next Monday, I'll be starting something new on my blog. Mondays will be art days! There are four different kinds of art days (so far):
Art Spotlight: Where I talk about an artist or a museum show or some other fun art that I've found.
Notes and Quotes: Notes and quotes from artists, art directors and/or editors about children's book art.
Arts and Crafts: Fun projects that you can do by yourself or with your family. No art training required.
Illustrator Interviews: Where I interview children's book illustrators about their books.*
*If you are an illustrator that wants to be considered for an interview in the future, please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org - with Art Day in the subject line. Please include your most recent book title, or forth coming title (along with the release date), the name of the author (if it's not you) and your website URL (if you have a site). I'm looking for children's book artists that do covers, black and white interior art, graphic novels, picture books, etc. If you do art for children's books and have a book out, or coming out, I'd like to interview you.
Sheila wants me to make Friday "zombie day" so she can have her own day to play. However, she hasn't promised to stay on Friday and not visit all the other days as well. Do you think she should have her own day? This Friday we'll find out how Sheila became a zombie cheerleader.
