From Sketchbook to Real Book
Artist Mike Lowery has long since illustrated for kids books, magazines, galleries, and calendars. But what inspired him to throw his hat into the author ring? With the release of his new book series this past spring, Mike discusses writing and illustrating his own project, how he balances his work across many mediums (including social media sharing), and why you shouldn’t be afraid to make a mistake in your sketchbook.
