The Postcard Post Old Home Week is so happy to welcome back illustrator Brooke Boynton Hughes. Brooke has had lots of good news and exciting changes in her life since her interview on The Postcard Post a little over a year ago. I’ll let Brooke fill you in…
BABY LOVE, written by Angela DiTerlizzi and published by Beach Lane Books came out on April 15th. This is the first picture book that I illustrated and I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to illustrate Angela’s lovely words.
I’ve started work on a second picture book with Beach Lane called BARK PARK that was written by Trudy Krisher and will come out in summer of 2017. I’m in the midst of working on character sketches and thumbnail layouts. BARK PARK is full of energy and will make a great read aloud, especially for dog lovers!
I recently finished the illustrations for a picture book with Random House called HENRY WANTS MORE! that was written by Linda Ashman and will come out in spring of 2016. Henry is an energetic toddler who wants more games, more stories, and more songs and completely wears his family out. Linda’s rhythmic story is full of love and exuberance and was a delight to illustrate.
The second book in the CUPCAKE COUSINS series, SUMMER SHOWERS, came out on June 16th (published by Disney/Hyperion). Kate Hannigan has created such wonderful characters in this series. I can’t wait to find out what happens in book 3!
My husband and I are spending this year traveling around the country in an RV. Learning how to work on the road has definitely been a bit of a challenge. But, I’m figuring things out and making adjustments little by little and we’ve been able to visit some wonderful places! We’re currently spending a few weeks at home in Colorado before heading up north to the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier.
Thank you for having me, Dana!
Thank YOU. Bonne route, Brooke!
