Let's Talk Illustrators #261: Ana Matsusaki

As someone who essentially collects illustrator interviews (and literally collects illustrated children's books), it's only natural that I'd want to talk to debut author-illustrator Ana Matsusaki about her book The Collector of Heads, translated by Bruna Dantas Lobato! Enjoy a peek behind the curtain of this gorgeous picture book debut!

Let's Talk Illustrators #260: Nic Yulo

I am so excited today to present my interview with Nic Yulo! I absolutely adored her 2022 debut, Patch of Sky, and I feel lucky I got a chance to catch her and talk about her sophomore picture book Out of the Blue. I hope you enjoy this beautiful and unexpected journey through feelings, friendship, and the deep blue sea.
