Yes, it's nice to find out how an illustrator got started or what tools they use. But if you'd really like to get to know a person, you should ask them this question...
When you press an unknown button, what do you hope it will do? Really, what do you hope will happen?
After you've had a think about that, take a peek at our new Q&A series - every Sunday, all hand drawn, and a little bit silly!
First up to be interviewed is the charming Mia Chirstopher. I like that her illustrations are simple and happy, like a child who's just discovered what a pencil can do. There's also something funny and curious going on behind the lines - something that I suspect could make a sterile gallery feel as comfortable as story time.
