Interview with Kevin Hawkes

Monday, November 12, 2007.

Photo of Kevin Hawkes from RandomHouse.caIn many respects, Kevin Hawkes was doomed to become a children’s book illustrator. His childhood was rich with children’s books and the inspiration of Paris with its grand forests and castles. In fact, one constant of his life as a child in a military family was the universal smell of libraries.

On this edition of Just One More Book, author and illustrator Kevin Hawkes talks about being inspired by a second grade art teacher and classic artists including N.C. Wyeth and Vermeer, telling stories through his artwork and the advice he offers to children in his school visits.
