Jeanne Conway, who illustrated Wild, Wild Wind and Merry Tilda, was recently awarded the SCBWI PAL Illustrator of the Month Award for Kansas /Missouri. This was one of the questions she was asked and her response:
8. What would be your dream project? Or what was your favorite project?
Recently I illustrated a children’s book about the wind called Wild, Wild Wind by Jodi Heaton Hurst. The main characters are swept up by the wind and this was terrific for me as I could play around with the various figures (human and animal) as they move through the air. The locale was in the country so I could use a palette of daylight colors. It was so much fun to do that book.
Thank you, Jeanne. I love your illustrations
and the way they depict my story.
