Somebody Else's Interview

For a long time now, I've been planning to interview illustrator Emily Hurst Pritchett. However, being the procrastinator I am, I haven't quite got around to it. Now, I suppose the point is kind of moot as Annie's Book Stop of Worcester conducted a great video interview with her.

It's up on YouTube, but I've posted it below. The interview is really great. In it, Emily gives great insight into her creative process, her own personal taste in books and pastimes, as well as what it's like illustrating for independent authors, publishers, and what she's up to with her personal art. As you watch, you might even see a couple familiar books being flashed. 

Emily is working on illustrations and the cover for As the Owl Flies and I have started the Tales of the Dragon Islands book. I'll share more of that shortly.




  1. I only got to watch a few minutes- but I plan to come back and watch the rest when I have more time. Love that procrastinating worked out in your favor. :)

  2. Yes, the interview is about 44 minutes, but there are a lot of interesting items in it. Thanks for checking it out.

  3. I so admire illustrators. They capture the essence of the story you've set down in words and give that story a whole new dimension.

    1. Yes, I agree. It was so interesting to see Emily describe her process.
