Interview with Illustrator Andrea Blinick

July 26, 2022

Picture Books, Eh? started as a way to promote the work of Canadian writers and illustrators releasing new books in 2022. Somehow I missed the memo and did not learn about it until the year was well underway, but lucky for me Andrea Blinick, illustrator of Sun in My Tummy, was more on the ball.

Here is a terrific interview in which Andrea talks about her process for creating art–from character development to sketching thumbnails–and gives us a sneak peek behind-the-scenes of Sun in My Tummy. She even reveals some of her favourite spread in the book–and I imagine it is not easy for an artist to choose just one.

I am intrigued by Andrea’s reference to playing with darkness and light in a new book she is working on and can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next!

You can learn more about Andrea on her website or follow her on Instagram @andreablinickillustration.
