Love of Reading – Rebecca Gavney Driscoll

Tuesday, July 29, 2008.

Love of Reading - Rebecca Gavney DriscollWhen we put out the call for illustrations that promote a love of reading, we didn’t expect to receive 51 submissions in about a month.

As part of the second anniversary celebrations of the Just One More Book!! children’s book podcast, we’re conducting short interviews with each illustrator that contributed to our Love of Reading Gallery. These interviews will be published three times each week as extra shows in our interview feed.

On this edition, Mark speaks with Rebecca Gavney Driscoll about her contribution called Reading With My Friend.

Be sure to enjoy all of the amazing artwork in our Love of Reading Gallery.

Rebecca’s illustration warms my heart and reminds me of the many Saturday mornings when I was a child and my mother would drop my two younger brothers and I off at the library. I was happiest when I had a bundle of books under my arm and I was leaving the library knowing I had hours and hours of enjoyment to be had reading.

I like the use of water colors and colored pencils that Rebecca used in her illustration. There is a lot of life in her drawing due to her use of bright colors and animated faces on her characters.
