HarperKids video: Meet Author/Illustrator Kevin Kenkes

Wow, I love watching this man draw. The video includes fascinating info about how Kevin Henkes draws and writes. He says that before starts a picture book, he works on the character first. He wants to have a clear image of the character before anything else.

One of my favourite quotes from the video: "If we expose our kids to books and art, nothing but good can come of it."

Unfortunately his official website seems to be hacked right now. :-(

I'm fascinated by the speed and accuracy this guy has! I'm afraid his mind is a machine! (just kidding). Thanks for sharing this vid!
