Bright artist Maddie Frost is the author-illustrator of three books; her most recent creation, Wakey Birds, published earlier this month with Templar Publishing. We’ve spoken to Maddie on the blog previously about her unique style of digital collaging from found textures, which she scans and then assembles into colorful, geometric scenes and characters with a ton of personality. With the publication of Wakey Birds, we took the opportunity to catch up with Maddie about the process of writing AND illustrating, the evolution of her style, and the challenges she encountered with this project. As always, Maddie kept it refreshingly real, honest, and funny and gave us a sneak peek at the book’s earliest stages.
