Hungry Thing- Gnawing to be Read

Another author (and illustrator) you wish you knew – Author Shawn Klimek and Illustrator Norbert Somosi talk about their collaborative effort when it came to creating a highly unique, dark fantasy told in five poems, “Hungry Thing.”

Shawn, what was it like for you to collaborate with Norbert on this project?

“Working with Norbert has been an honor. First of all, what he cares most about is his art and vision. When I discovered his artwork I asked him whether he had ever illustrated poetry before. He replied by inviting me to show him some of my poetry. His openness to the idea was very welcoming. He did not commit yet because he had no idea who I was, and said he only wanted to do work that inspired him. I sent him three poems, one of which was “the hungry thing“. He said he was drawn to it and could immediately visualize a drawing.

One thing led to another and I wrote five poems, instead. He was flexible, creative, and prioritized the quality of our collaboration. He pressed for what was important to him and accommodated what was important to me. It was an ideal collaboration. We treated each other like artists with a shared vision.”

Norbert, what was it like for you to collaborate with Shawn on this project?

“The collaboration with Shawn was a positive learning experience for me, even though I knew it would take a long time to finish this project. At the beginning I accepted it because one of his first poems reminded me of my childhood, when I was living in a little village and we would go play in a forest nearby. It is very easy to work with Shawn. We discussed every detail several times so that we were both satisfied with the end result.”

All proceeds from “Hungry Thing” go to the Jay Mehta fund until the end of February 2020.
