Considering that I’ve worked with Ekua Holmes, Victo Ngai, Don Tate, Troy Cummings, Ashley Spires, and Tom Lichtenheld, among other artists, today’s question is a great one.
There’s a newly published illustrator that you’re going to be hearing a lot about — and you’re especially going to be hearing a lot about her from me.
Her name is Shanda McCloskey, and we’re making a book together!
Shanda is the author and illustrator of Doll-E 1.0 —
— and its upcoming companion book, T-Bone the Drone, both published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
Little, Brown has published one of my books, too —
— and I could not be happier that they’ve brought Shanda and me together to create Fire Truck Vs. Dragon. Here’s the Official Announcement from Publishers Weekly:
I can’t wait to see the characters of Fire Truck and Dragon come to life — especially now that I’ve see a bit of Shanda’s own process behind creating Doll-E 1.0.
And you’ll all be able to meet them yourself in spring 2020! (Though maybe there will be a sneak peek or two in the meantime…)
