I am an animator, author, and illustrator who loves to create characters in every way--through writing, drawing, modeling, animating, and even voice over acting. Many of my characters were inspired by pets with big personalities. (I seem to have a knack for picking them.)
I believe a child is far more demanding of clarity and brevity in books than an adult, and yet a child is delightfully more tolerant of silliness. I love the challenge of expressing deep feelings with silliness and brevity.
