Let's Talk Illustrators #241: Steph Littlebird

I recently got a chance to talk to artist, curator, writer, and now picture book illustrator Steph Littlebird about My Powerful Hair, written by Carole Lindstrom. We discussed Steph's deep connection to Carole's manuscript and how her work always serves to educate people about the history of Indigenous people in America. I'm proud to share that interview here with you all today.

Let's Talk Illustrators #240: Zoey Abbott

It feels bananas that I got a chance to talk to Zoey Abbott about her newest picture book Banana. I say bananas because in addition to this being a bananas story, the design of this book is also super on point when it comes to bananas (and cell phones). I hope you enjoy this chat as much as I did about a story many of us (even adults!) know all too well.
