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 one last time for part 3 of this three-part video series. Noah shows us how he adds color and creates movement in his illustrations in CLOUD COUNTRY, in part with the help of paintings created by his own children.

We hope you enjoyed watching Noah’s “The Making of Cloud Country” video series. If you missed the earlier videos, you can view them here: Part 1 and Part 2.
