Illustrating Juna and Appa

Illustrating Juna and Appa

Despite being isolated in the art-making corner of my home and never meeting face to face, illustrating children’s books is a very collaborative effort. I would not be able to do what I do without the feedback, insight and generous patience of the editor, art director and of course the author.

While in South Dakota promoting the book A Place for Harvest, my Sunday morning flight home is cancelled. With the next flight not leaving until Tuesday, I decide to make the most of my time and drive an hour up to revisit Spearfish, Kenny’s hometown. Jennifer McIntyre and Dedra Birzer of South Dakota Historical Society Press think it would be a good chance to visit the spots depicted in the book. So after double-checking that road and weather conditions look good, off I go… I love a road trip!
