‘Rey and Pals’ Interview with Jeffrey Brown

Tomorrow, Jeffrey Brown’s new book Rey and Pals will be out from Chronicle Books and we had the opportunity to ask him a few questions. Enjoy!

What’s your creative process like? For example, do you start with a list of ideas for the jokes, or do you start with doodles or thumbnail sketches to develop the ideas.

I usually start with the ideas – for Rey and Pals, I came up with almost 200 initial ideas! Sometimes these start with a quote from one of the films and I need to figure out a situation to use it, or I might want to make a joke about a real life situation and figure out what scene from the film I could use to make the joke. Other times there’s something from the films I want to draw – like Maz’s castle with its menagerie of aliens – and I need to figure out a joke that might fit with it. These ideas are all drawn as tiny thumbnail sketches, which I then work with my editors at Chronicle and Lucasfilm to refine and flesh out before I start final artwork.

Whether it’s right for you depends entirely on whether you’ll be reading it to your kids or not. Either way, it does have some really nice artwork. Click here for our full review.
