      You rock, Alex 🙂

      Thanks Again Alana for stopping by on your blog tour and good luck with this. book. To answer your question, I'm inspired by Degas, Manet, Franz Marc and Miranda July among others (kind of around the board, lol).

      Thank you again for having us! Love your inspirations – especially Degas. Always feel so uplifted to see a Degas ballerina. 🙂

      I don't know Miranda July – will have to check her out!

    I still have a couple of picture books on the shelf, even though youngest is 9. I can't pack them away just yet.

      Love, love, love picture books. My six year olds really want to move on to chapter books exclusively, but I keep telling them that both have a place in literature and on their shelves. 🙂

      There's something so special about illustrations and words hand in hand!

    I couldn't agree with you more about literature's connection to visual art. Lovely post!

    Congratulations to the Story Sprouts authors!
    I think that's a lovely idea, visiting a museum for inspiration. I've done it a couple of times!
