Fun fact about Author and Illustrator
And what's the fun fact about the author and the illustrator? it's having fun!! Yay!!:D
Yeah, what can be more fun than sitting on the table discussing all pages of story and illos of the book we are working on.
Datin Rossiti actually is the first author and the project owner I met in person so far after last 8 books I've illustrated. Like I wanted so much to meet Carole Amber of " TheGift of The Ladybug" from Ohio US, the best way we can meet is on skype. Well, it can be considered as face to face, but through cyber world. And conversating through email with Alexander Zaslavski of "Emma and The Tooth Fairy" from NYC-US, so was with Rani Fitriani Ishak, Fani Aprina Ahmadi of " Wa Shulhu Khoir, Dan Berdamai itu Baik" from Bandung Indonesia. Meeting in person or through internet are great ways to discuss about the work in making children book since we can discuss and communicate about the content and of how we want the book to be understood by the reader or the book it self to speak and stand. One different experience was in 1999, I have had illustrated series of 5 books for a publishing house in Jakarta and i hardly met or chat with the author, but luckily the editor of the book has manage to substitutes for the author and to communicate the book.
