I had the opportunity to meet and see Tillie on a panel at SDCC and couldn’t wait to dive in to Spinning. Was not disappointed! Spinning is Tillie’s story of how the little (and not so little) moments shape who we are as an adult. Absolutely adored this and can’t wait to see what’s next for Tillie. Tillie will be answering five questions at each stop on the blog tour — follow along to learn about her creative process, about what’s involved in competitive ice skating, and more! Check out our interview below (and more pages here) and pick up Spinning in all its gorgeousness!
The use of color in Spinning is a key part of the storytelling. What was your process like to choose the use of color and shading through the story?
