Love of Reading Gallery – Lily (age 6)

Friday, September 25, 2009.

I’ve had the privilege of interviewing authors, illustrators and book people of all walks of life and spanning both ends of careers.  Today, I break new ground for me as I interview a six year-old who’s not my own daughter.

Lily was five when she submitted an illustration to our Love of Reading Gallery, making her the youngest contributor to our collection of art.  She never named her piece so I’ve called it Books and Friends.  On this edition, I speak with blogger and budding author/illustrator, Lily, about her illustration, the tools she uses and the projects she’s working on.

Listen to interviews with other members of Lily’s family:

Love of Reading Gallery – Daniele Rossi

You meet a lot of talented people in the podcast community.  Daniele Rossi, illustrator and producer of the Stuttering is Cool podcast, is a perfect example.  We became good friends after meeting at the Podcasters Across Borders conference in 2007 and that led him to respond to our open invitation for illustrators and artists to contribute to our Love of Reading Gallery.

Incidentally, Daniele is part of the speaking program at this year’s PAB09 event, taking place in Kingston, Canada from June 19-21.

During a recent trip to Toronto, Mark spoke with Daniele about his contribution to our Love of Reading Gallery, Now This One, digital sketchbooks and the beauty of seeing eraser marks on real paper.
