It was with great pleasure that I had the opportunity to chat with my recent guest and a rising star in the world of Children's Book Illustration, . . . Alice McKinley! I may think of her as a rising star but with several illustration credits already to her name, she is quickly reaching star status amongst the Children's book inner circles.
Her wonderfully crafted art and talent for storytelling take center stage with "Nine Lives Newton" and it is a joy to read and consume with each and every page turn. You might think that Newton is an obvious story that revolves around a cat with its nine lives. Well, you would be wrong with that assumption! Newton just so happens to be a Bassett Hound! Sounds like crazy fun . . . and trust me when I tell you that it's just the beginning! With "Nine Lives Newton" already taking the market by storm, Alice is poised to follow that up with a book about a boy and a Dodo Bird; actually lots and lots of Dodo birds!
Join me as I talk in-depth about her career thus far as an illustrator and some lessons learned during her successful journey. She also shares her very unique perspective regarding some of the creative challenges and joys that are often associated with the art of illustration.
