If you have a minute and are interested in hearing about my experiences as the Writer-in-Residence at the Boston Public Library, check out my interview at the Library as Incubator Project.
So I know that based on the title of this post, you’re assuming I have an illustrator who is a robot. And, well, maybe that’s true. I don’t want to start any rumors, but I haven’t actually met the illustrator in person. Perhaps he IS a robot. And even when I do meet him, I may not know. Robot illustrators don’t always like to flaunt their robotness.
Anyhoo, I’ll stop spouting nonsense and get to the big announcement. I can finally reveal who’ll be illustrating POWER DOWN, LITTLE ROBOT and its sequel: the amazing Tim Zeltner! Check out his incredible portfolio here.
When I first saw Tim’s work, I was blown away. And then I discovered that he’d done the original cover for Princess Academy by Shannon Hale and I literally shrieked.
So gorgeous. This has been one of my all-time favorite covers for years (not to mention one of my all-time favorite books). And now I’m beyond excited to see what Tim will do with my robot book. Especially since he may or may not be a robot himself.
