For Illustrators (and the rest of us who create and craft stories for children): Spend Some Time With Brian Selznick on Reading Rockets

Okay, if you only have 11 minutes, watch this one:

If you have 22, watch this one!

In both, Brian shares process and inspiration for his ground-breaking and Caldecott Medal-winning THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET.

The story of how he integrated images with the text is fantastic.

In the longer video, we learn more about his childhood and how he ended up illustrating and writing stories for children.

They're both excellent and inspiring.

Illustrate and Write On,
