Love of Reading Gallery – Gracie (age 7)

Wednesday, September 16, 2009.

We opened our Love of Reading Gallery in July 2008 and invited all illustrators to submit original artwork that promotes a love of reading.  Submissions came from as far as Brazil, Vietnam and South Africa and covered all age ranges.

On this edition, Mark speaks with artist, blogger and budding author, Gracie, now 8 (she was 7 when she created her illustration) about Love for Reading, her contribution to our Love of Reading Gallery, her illustration technique and a book idea she has.

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

Did you notice Gracie’s reference to The HICCUPotamus (on JOMB)?

Oh.. I really enjoyed this interview! :o)

And Gracie: you’ll make a wonderful author/illustrator one day. I loved your story idea. Keep reading lots of books!

I was really impressed by Gracie’s artwork. When I first saw it, I thought it had been done by a professional illustrator. I love the cut paper style and the bright colors. I was also impressed by how well-spoken Gracie was during her interview, and what good ideas she has. If she grows up to be a writer, I’ll definitely read her books!
