Rock Stars of Reading part 5: Diane de Groat

Thursday, April 9, 2009.

Author/Illustrator Diane de Groat walks us through the digital process of putting dogs in poses they don’t do — like lounging on a couch with a newspaper — for her upcoming book (with Shelley Rotner), Dogs Don’t Brush Their Teeth (coming in August 2009).  She also shows us how she adds digital colour, then real paint to her illustrations.  Lucy and Bayla particularly enjoyed having the opportunity to sketch using Diane’s digital tablet.


Be sure to check out Diane’s contribution to our Love of Reading Gallery.

Did I spy a large, stuffed, baseball-playing rodent in Diane’s studio? I knew there was a reason I loved kid’s book creators!
