Andrew Joyner is an illustrator (and sometimes author) of children’s books. Watch this clip and find out why he loves drawing elephants so much. What techniques does he use to build his drawings? What materials and tools does he use to create his illustrations? Andrew describes the way he works with a designer and publisher to decide how the text and images should look. What is Andrew trying to create for readers when they turn each page? Andrew's advice for new illustrators is to draw as much as you can and to not get frustrated if your first drawings don't look the way you want them to. Find a story to illustrate. It might be a story you or a friend have written or you could try illustrating a story from a book. Be patient and have fun!
