Let's Talk Illustrators #280: Netsanet Tesfay

I'm pleased to share my interview with Netsanet Tesfay about her sophomore illustrated children's book The Gabi That Girma Wore, written by Fasika Adefris and Sara Holly Ackerman. This book offers such a unique glimpse into a culture not often reflected in children's books, and it was such an honor to talk to Netsanet about her process and personal connection to the story. Enjoy!

Let's Talk Illustrators #279: Xin Li

I am very pleased to present my conversation with Xin Li, author and illustrator of I Lived Inside a Whale. This is one of those books that I knew would be an interview on the site just from the moment I saw the cover (though the casewrap and endpapers didn't hurt either!), so I hope you enjoy learning as much about your process as I did!
