Interview with Gijsbert (Nic) van Frankenhuyzen

Monday, February 23, 2009.

No matter how you look at it, picture book illustration is art.  And when it comes to realism, illustrators face many challenges including visual storytelling and being true to the subject.

It took Gijsbert (Nic) van Frankenhuyzen about forty years to realize his childhood dream of becoming an illustrator.  Nic joins Mark to talk about his move from Art Director to Illustrator, visual inspiration on books including Saving Samantha and one of his greatest challenges, illustrating the book The Edmund Fitzgerald: Song of the Bell.
