Episode 13: Illustration

Shoo Rayner, Heather Parry & Jules Danskin

28 July 2020

We talk to an inspiring illustrator whose YouTube videos have taught millions to draw and to two editors who feature a guest illustrator for every issue of their literary magazine.

Children's author and illustrator Shoo Rayner, a firm festival favourite, talks about how he learned to tell a story through pictures, his evolution as a writer, the glorious Wigtown Sketchbook and how he developed a substantial following on YouTube, as well as some exciting new projects he has in store.

Literary editors Heather Parry and Jules Danskin discuss the second issue of their magazine Extra Teeth, which has been delayed due to the current situation. They tell us why they started the magazine and what to expect when it launches in late August.
