25. Starting from Sketch: Inside the Picture Book with Will Hillenbrand
(The Thurber House & The Ohio Center
for the Book, 2000)
Will Hillenbrand (All Ages)

This book is designed to share my approach to illustrating books. Illustrators all have different styles and use different techniques, but the process of making a picture book is much the same for all of us. 

Geared for use in classroom and library settings, Starting from Sketch is useful for children and adults.  Vellum paper, available through art supply stores, is needed to complete the lesson.
