Jim Hoover, Part 1 of 2


Multi-award-winning children’s book art director, Jim Hoover, talks to Giuseppe Castellano about his failed attempt at working for The Simpsons; what it’s like to talk to Maurice Sendak and Hilary Knight on the phone; how he finds illustrators; and why he never wants to hear, “Are we married to this illustrator”.

This is part 1 of a 2-part conversation. Be sure to listen to part 2—in which Jim answers your questions.
