Working with an illustrator

Illustrator method

Working with an illustrator is proving to be an interesting and thought provoking project. Seeing my words come to life with some deft pen strokes, seeing what a visual artist sees as important points in my work is fascinating.  I’m fortunate I think to be working with an illustrator who I have come to know quite well, and who thinks at least somewhat like me. The questions he asks and the clarity of my own vision if the piece that he works to understand make me think more deeply about my own process.

I’m finding as I watch Matthew Parker work that I an inspired to revisit sone of my earlier pieces and work more depth and substance into them, refining the characters more fully and creating a more engaging scenario. It’s something that I think I would recommend to any writer. A different perspective on a piece, actually seeing your work visually created as someone else sees it is, quite literally, eye opening.
