Issue #3, the Outside-In Issue, challenges readers to look at the world from different angles, be it from the point of view of an insect, by delving into a storybook and becoming the main character, or by foraging outdoors to make an herbal-infused sweet tea. This issue features cover art and sketchbook tips by beloved illustrator, cartoonist, and writer Lisa Brown; an interview with and activities from Hello Nature! creator Nina Chakrabarti; an interview with prolific kid-lit author Amy Novesky (who shares writing tips with young aspiring writers); a Literary Giants as Kids comic on Beatrix Potter by Elizabeth Haidle; an essay on growing up to be an artist by sculptor Ruth Kneass; a beautiful wordless comic that speaks volumes about family and memory by Micah Player; a zen parable by Paul du Coudray; a DIY kokedama (moss ball plant) activity by Rito-ito; and the usual coloring, crafts, and fun you've leaned to expect from Illustoria!
