I've come across quite a few interesting and inspiring videos lately that I wanted to share.

• The first one is a video by Mike Kerr about the sketchbooks of children's book illustrator Renata Liwska:


A Quiet Look - How to become a children's book illustrator in one (not so easy) step from mike kerr on Vimeo.

• Next is a TED talk by children's book writer and illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka:

• And finally, the latest Oliver Jeffers video about how he makes picture books:

Also, a few months back I read a really great article via Renata Liwska's blog.  It was about how to work with an illustrator and was written by Deborah Underwood, a writer Renata has worked with on several picture books.  You can read it here.
