If you've ever wondered about the process an illustrator goes through once they receive a manuscript from their publisher, check out Kirsti Wakelin's great link on her website that goes step-by-step through the creation of a spread for When They Are Up. I had no idea there would be so many steps. Kirsti is the brainchild behind the wonderful blog created for BC writers, the CWILL-BC blog. It's a great place to keep up on children's lit. events in British Columbia.
