How does an award winning author and illustrator create their books?

Judy Schachner, #1 NY Times Best Selling Author/Illustrator, gives us a glimpse into her creation process.  See this link for a wonderful example of a character bible, which serves as the foundation for her books.  Her process seeks to break down barriers that hinder creativity, and provides inspiration to potential writers and authors.

Judy also provides unique insight into the character of Skippyjon Jones (my personal favorite), which causes increased laughter and understanding.
