Beautiful daydreams

Noah Klocek‘s first picture book, CLOUD COUNTRY, written by Bonny Becker, will debut on November 3rd. The story centers on a hopeful cloudmaker named Gale who desperately wants to graduate from Formation School. Today we return to Noah’s studio for part 2 of this three-part video series. Noah shows us how words and pictures were brought together through several different drafts before reaching what would become CLOUD COUNTRY as we know it.

Visit All The Wonders tomorrow to see Part 3 of “The Making of Cloud Country“.
