Jessica Hische is a lettering artist who has created several picture books, including Tomorrow I’ll Be Brave, Tomorrow I’ll Be Kind and Who Will U Be? Her latest book, My First Book of Fancy Letters, is out in October. An alphabet book with a twist, it aims to get kids excited about drawing letters.

I met Jessica recently at OFFF Barcelona, where we talked about whether creatives should work for free and how she crafted the film titles for Are you there God, it’s me Margaret. Here, we chat about her work creating picture books, as well as the biggest challenge she faces today and how she juggles her career with being a mother of three.
