Hey! Congratulations Sue Todd, you’ve been noticed as one of the

20 exciting illustrators to follow in 2020

Q/SF           It has been wonderful getting to know you Sue, you have many interests that show up in your art, illustrations. What’s up next for you? Now that you’ve been noticed as one of the exciting illustrators to follow in 2020, would you mind sharing what you have going on in your studio?

A/SF           I’m working on writing and illustrating my own books and have four in various stages of development, from picture books to a graphic novel. It is a long journey and picture books are not easy to write. They look deceptively simple but it is that very simplicity which requires each word to be perfect.  The kidlit community is welcoming and generous and I have learned much from my colleagues and from two organizations to which I belong: SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) and CANSCAIP (Canadian Society of Children’s Authors Illustrators and Performers). Critique partners are essential and I have taken several courses and workshops on writing for children. My stories are not yet ready for prime time but here is a piece of final art from my graphic novel about Josephine Bonaparte, (seen in the featured Image).

Thank you very much Sue for sharing your story, it is a pleasure to know you and I’m looking forward to staying in touch.
