Nonfiction Picture Book Illustration
Nonfiction picture books are very popular, and they will likely remain an integral part of the children’s book market in the future. What does it take to illustrate them?
Join Dow Phumiruk as she talks about illustrating narrative nonfiction picture books, from research to jacket design and everything in between. She’ll share an overview of the process with examples from her experience and then talk about some challenging aspects of nonfiction work, including the need for informative and interesting compositions, working with an art director or editor on revisions, and more.
Dow is the author and/or illustrator of 10 books with 7 more on the way, many of which are narrative nonfiction projects. You can find out more about her on her website: here
