Let’s have a little fun to close out the year. This episode features a countdown of the top-5 most listened to picturebooking episodes of 2015. Plus I announce my favorite book featured on the show this year.
Noah Klocek is the creator of the picture book CLOUD COUNTRY, a Pixar Animated Studio Artist Showcase. Noah teamed up with Bonny Becker and Disney-Hyperion to make this world come to life. It was not an easy task but what came out of the struggle was a beautiful and epic story.
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.
Today we return to Noah Klocek’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.
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 Noah’s opening his studio to us for an opportunity to see some of the work that went into creating CLOUD COUNTRY. Part 1 of this three-part video series offers up a look at Noah’s sketchbook and the various beginnings that led him to creating this whimsical story.
