Illustrators Craig Skaggs and Jennifer Stolzer will share their perspectives on the benefits of developing a relationship with an illustrator at the St. Louis Writers Guild workshop from 10 a.m. to noon, July 14, at The Lodge Des Peres, 1050 Des Peres Rd., St. Louis, MO, 63131. Free to Guild members; $5 for nonmembers.
Craig and Jennifer will provide tips on how to get the best results from your partnership with an illustrator. They will share examples of their work and describe how the images proceed from rough concept to final art.
“I want to dispel the misconception that every affordable artist with experience lives in another country,” said Craig, who has more than thirty years’ experience in illustration. He recently became an official fine artist for Lucasfilms, but still does covers for self-published authors.
Jennifer Stolzer Illustration has served both independent authors and publishing houses for over eight years. She graduated from Webster University with a degree in digital media and animation, and uses this skill set to create bright and engaging characters in both pictures and words. She will discuss strategies available to both writers and illustrators to best utilize visual storytelling for all markets and age groups. Find samples of her work at www.jenniferstolzer.com or on Facebook under Jennifer Stolzer Illustration. She is also the author of Threadcaster and other books for children and young adults.
