  1. Hi Matthew! I’ve been using Molly Bang’s “Picture This” as part of an essential tool in conceptualizing a visual narrative in my UCSD children’s book illustration class. Also, it continually amazes me how much knowing Bang’s observations has deepened my appreciation viewing great works at museums. Guaranteed! Molly Bang has done us all a great service, in our mission to communicate to a global audience. Thank you for this superb interview. Love them all, actually! ๐Ÿ™‚
