picture book club: it's grumpycorn time!

Illustrator Steve Anthony has started a new film series called 'Picture Book Club' with writer Fiona Barker, going around to different illustrators studios and interviewing them about a selected book. Here's their video with me, giving a look at my studio, some insight into how I illustrated Grumpycorn, and a step-by-step demonstration of how to draw him:



Thank you, Fiona and Steve! These kind of videos could be quite handy for people stuck at home in quarantine right now, or with children from schools that have shut down. A lot of writers, illustrators and publishers have lots of activities and free resources they've made for their websites, but it's often difficult to get the word out about what's available. I've tried to start a social media hashtag #FreeBookResources (with moderate succcess); it would be great if parents and teachers could get an overarching view of their options. In the meantime, I have lots of activity sheets on my website, and people of all ages are welcome to jump into the Twitter @StudioTeaBreak drawing challenges. I dare you to use some of these challenges to inspire your own new games and stories!
