This weekend, I was treated to the best and most inspiring presentation at the NJ SCBWI summer conference .
The amazing, incredibly talented David Wiesner talked about his art, books and his sources of inspiration. Later that day, I was fortunate to sit in a smaller format where David talked about using references to create his illustrations from building and photographing models for architectural details to sculpting frogs for the frog invasion in Tuesday to following and recording every movement of his cat for Mr. Wuffles!
He even studied lizard’s anatomy for Art & Max
If you ever have a chance to hear David talk, don’t miss it. The man is as incredible as his books.
