Enjoy this fantastic guest post from Helen and Thomas Docherty of the Snatchabook fame! :)
Q: What is it like to work together on a project like The Snatchabook?
Creating the illustrations for a book is a big job, deadlines can be tight and I’m often in a bit of a rush. So I really appreciate having another pair of eyes to spot where things aren’t working, how they could be improved or to add details and check for continuity. Our house is full of picture books and our daughters are at just the right age for them, so we are always reading new things and talking about the stories and characters. It’s a very happy (if a little chaotic) environment to work in.
Last weekend we had the official Snatchabook launch here in Swansea – it was really exciting to do this together, and of course our daughters were very proud of their Mum and Dad.
