Interview with Kevin Hawkes

Monday, November 12, 2007.

Photo of Kevin Hawkes from RandomHouse.caIn many respects, Kevin Hawkes was doomed to become a children’s book illustrator. His childhood was rich with children’s books and the inspiration of Paris with its grand forests and castles. In fact, one constant of his life as a child in a military family was the universal smell of libraries.

On this edition of Just One More Book, author and illustrator Kevin Hawkes talks about being inspired by a second grade art teacher and classic artists including N.C. Wyeth and Vermeer, telling stories through his artwork and the advice he offers to children in his school visits.

Stumbled upon your site via another blog and really enjoyed your interview with Kevin Hawkes. You asked great questions, and it’s always interesting to hear the voice behind the name you see on book covers.
