I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place Im drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real. .
A lot of times its the child that sees something and not the grownup. I love that because, when readers get older, they start looking for the most important ideas in the story. They dont look at things in the same way anymore. Children havent really learned to do that yet. They take all their great, intellectual skills, look at the full page, and appreciate all of the different things. .
A book is something that young readers can experience on their own time. They decide when to turn the page. Theyll put their arm right on the page so you cant turn it because theyre not ready to go to the next page yet. They just want to look at it again, or they want to read the book over and over because they really enjoy setting the pace themselves. .
The books take a year just to do the drawing. I will travel to a country to do the research and get ideas. Sometimes I dont travel to do research, but mostly I do. It takes a long time, but do I ever get tired of it? Not really. The characters kind of grow and evolve. .
