A Peek inside Porcupine's Tree

Ever wonder how an illustrator begins the process of creating the art for a picture book? In his blog, Werner Zimmermann shares his process by showing off some of his earliest sketches from our book,  A Porcupine in a Pine Tree.

No need for me to recap here - just follow this link to see Quilliam (the porcupine, of course), the squirrels, moose, loons, dogs and puffins as they come to life in Werner's sketchbook.

Awesome. Just awesome.

  1. I just got back from looking at Werner's post, and WOW. I especially love the skeleton sketch. I love bones.

    What a treat to get a look at his process. Thanks for sharing the link.

    And my kids love the book, by the way. :-)


Because: Science!
