Rick Brown


What was your favorite book when you were a child?

A book of nursery rhymes and a compilation of favorite classics.

Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?

I realized my strengths early in life and followed them. In other words I was not great at math and some other basic subjects but I loved to make pictures.

Do you have any advice for future authors or illustrators?

Plan to work harder than you would at a normal job. Persevere and do what you love. Always do what you love. Never work just to make a living.
