Tim Livingston, The Forester Artist, often says, “If I get one good take-away from a book or class, I consider the investment worthwhile.”  I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard this comment as he loads up on art books at our local bookstore. Suffice it to say, judging by the number of books around our place, he says it a lot. In my journey to improve my author/illustrator craft, I must say that I agree wholeheartedly with Tim.

This page is to share some of the places online where I’ve picked up priceless tidbits related to children’s literature and illustration.
