Book covers are the gatekeepers to the story that lurks behind. So who will enter? Will YOU?
In this lesson, we’ll hear from Jess and Heidi, two illustrators whose job it is to get all these things done in one little cover space.
And we’ll learn some of the secrets to making a truly MIGHTY book cover!
Heidi is an author-illustrator who lives in sunny Melbourne.
Heidi has a background in art and design. Her books are mostly based on true stories, except for one.
Heidi’s first picture book, I Just Ate My Friend, was shortlisted for numerous awards.
Jess is a children’s book lover, draw-er and reader based in Melbourne, who also creates work for card companies, picture books, original paintings, prints and all types of different client projects.
Iceberg, illustrated by Jess and written by fellow Series 2 creator Claire Saxby, was the 2022 winner of CBCA Picture Book of the Year.
