Hi, I’m Nick Patton, the creator, and host of Picturebooking.
Picturebooking produces in-depth interviews with children’s book authors and illustrators for people who believe that art and literature can have a profoundly positive impact on a kid’s life.
Picturebooking is here to serve those who want to understand what it takes to create these stories. And I promise that engaging with picturebooking will help you get inspired, feel connected, and take action toward making a difference through picture books.
In case you forgot to read the paragraph above, my name is Nick Patton. I have published over 150 podcast episodes and two picture books. I won the prestigious Mead Library’s 2019 Peeps Diorama Contest and a handful of awards for my college athletic designs. I live in Sheboygan, Wisconsin with two kids and one wife.
