Weekend Links: Peter Brown on Writing and Illustrating

Peter Brown has written or illustrated some of my favorite pictures books, including Children Make Terrible Pets and Creepy Carrots (written by Aaron Reynolds). 

The following videos all feature Peter Brown talking about the techniques, inspirations and tools he uses in writing or illustrating a picture book. They are ranged from shortest to longest, but certainly not by most valuable. If you have the time, each video is worth watching:


  1. Interesting! I wish I could illustrate. No such luck though.

  2. Me too. But I love learning about the illustrating process. I think it helps when trying to write with pictures in mind.

  3. Ooh interesting. I love Peter Brown's work, too. I'll bookmark these to watch later.

    1. I hope you enjoy them. He's got a fun personality and the info is great.

  4. Thanks for sharing:) It's great to see how great illustrators work:)

  5. Thank you so much for sharing these, Johnell! I still have so much to learn about PB writing!
