The Art-Led Picture Book

Kristen Nobles, Art Director, Charlesbridge

I believe the best picture books have roots in the creator’s personal experiences and interests. Are you an illustrator looking to write your own books as an author-illustrator? Or a writer searching for out-of-the-box tools to identify unique story ideas? Have you heard the phrase “write what you know” but aren’t sure how to practically apply it? This workshop will suggest several ways to find the story that only you can create, will include an exercise to get your ideas flowing, and will showcase visual examples of how author-illustrators have moved from idea to early development to published books with these brainstorming prompts.
