Comments What Do Illustrators Do?

  • Farhana Faruq

    I got this book for my nephews since they are constantly watching me and asking me questions about illustrating.I really like how this book showed two different illustrators working on the same book. It shows how different every ones style is, and in the end both are just as exciting.It is however a little outdated because it makes not mention of digital work. Many illustrators now do a lot of their inking on computer and those that don't still scan the finished work and tweak a little on comput [...]

    One of my 5yo's professed career ambitions is "illustrator," so I was excited to share this picture book with her. We both liked the way that it compared two different illustrators as they worked on a similar project. It gave lots of interesting details about the job and the book industry without overloading the text with too much information for my little one. Great book!


  • Chrissy Emmons

    I am really glad I picked this book up. Often I will read a children's book and think that the author did such as amazing job writing the story, but would the story have been as good without the wonderful illustrations describing the story? I think that illustrations can be pushed to the back sometimes and students should see the hard work they put into their illustrations and books. This book tells the story on the process of an illustrator and all the different things they do. Illustrators do [...]


  • Cole Hoffman

    This instructional graphic novel gives a very creative approach on how to write a book. It is a story of two separate illustrators illustrating the classic tale of Jack and the Bean Stock. The point of view is from the illustrators pets and how they are worried that both books will end up looking the same, however they and the reader both learn that illustrators have different styles and that is what makes each book unique. What is learned throughout is that even if two books were to have the sa [...]


  • Dolly

    This is an entertaining and informative book that explains the job of an illustrator. We read What Do Authors Do? several years ago and I liked that it described the process of writing and publishing a book. This book is very similar and details the process of creating the illustrations for a story. It shows that there are different styles, perspectives, media, and even ways to tell the same story. It's an inspiring book for young artists and we enjoyed reading it together.


  • Jenny

    My daughter (9) is artistic and this was a great explanation of something she appreciates. She loved the story about two illustrators who chose to illustrate the same book. It showed the processes they followed and the options faced. It explored the choice of mediums with examples of a few side by side and the role of editors. My daughter enjoyed it so much she insisted on reading it to me and her brother.


  • Arp

    Loved reading this with the kids. When I was a kid, I loved to draw and I had no idea that one could do anything to make a living as an artist. It never occurred to me that someone illustrated books, cartoons, advertisements, etc. Both ds8 & dd5 enjoyed reading this with me and seeing what illustrators do. Both of them enjoy drawing quite a bit and it's good for them to know that they can continue their passions instead of turning them off in favor of income.


  • Cindy

    This was really a fun story.I think they should have a whole serious of book like this that describe the in's and out's of jobs and make all high schoolers read them. I think they should also add typical wages/pay checks, and how to get a job (How hard is it to get a job) and what kind of training you would need. Simple, yet complete.


  • Alison Durbin

    I really enjoyed this book! As an artist myself, I can relate to the sometimes grueling process of creating a piece. I think that this book is an accurate depiction of what goes on in the life of an artist/illustrator. I loved how there was a comic strip going on along with the book's illustrations. This added humor and added to the story overall. I think children would really enjoy this book.


  • Randall

    The unseen, abstract struggles of an illustrator are brought out in the open in this enlightening story of how illustrators tackle the challenges of the picture book, from figuring out the style of drawings to capturing the child’s perspective.


  • Andria

    This is a great book about illustrating although it goes into too much detail for the kindergarten kids that I use it with so I have to gloss over some of the information as they can't sit still for that long.


  • Kelly

    This books helps young artists see how much thought goes into making illustrations, and that it's not always the first thing they draw. It also discusses the different ways a story can be represented.


  • Maria

    Done in a comic-book style with additional text. Good at explaining how illustrators do their work.


  • Peg Allgeier

    We liked the way the story was told from the perspective of the cat and dog, as well as the illustrators. A fun and thorough way to teach kids the illustrating process.


  • Jeremiah Lee

    Super awesome overview of what book illustrators do. This is fantastic, especially for kids that worry about making every sketch perfect (even professional illustrators don't!).


  • Lindsey Lubker

    This is a good informational book for An English class. It shows the process that illustrators go through to complete their work.


  • Erica

    This book was a great introduction into what illustrators do to make such fantastic picture books! Very interesting!


  • Laney Braden

    How do I read it??


  • Susan

    I liked it but I think having two different illustrators talking about illustrating got to be confusing in several places.
