#HFGather Illustrator Chat: The Legacy of Tomie dePaola

Pat Cummings hosted our #HFGather chat today, talking with art directors Laurent Linn and Cecilia Yung about the legacy of Tomie dePaola:

  • Style: don’t worry about style. Just keep working and it will come
  • Accessing your 5-year-old self like Tomie did, with joy, curiosity and a sense of mischief
  • Tomie was a unique part of the children’s book landscape
  • His art was deceptively simple, yet it had many layers
  • He loved to curate his life and his art
  • Tomie put (almost) everything he liked, into his books
