A very big thank you to Kate Leiper for a fascinating overview of how she creates artwork for picture books.
Kate uses artwork to help tell a story and she used examples of her work to show how she uses colour and space to emphasize size, atmosphere and movement. She primarily uses chalk pastel and pencil to create her superb illustrations.
She has worked on a number of books, several of which can be viewed on Kate’s website.
Thank you Kate
