I was thrilled to see Bob as a featured interview this morning. He’s one of my favorite editorial/children’s book illustrators. His speed of working is pretty amazing as is not using any rough sketches. Great hearing how his mind works when approaching a project.

I’ve met Bob at our conventions a few times…. Bob knows I like his wife much better, haha.
Kidding, he’s one of the good guy (in a weird, cartoonist sort of way:)
How cool for you both to be “captured” on paper and to know own a “BOB”!
