RWYK Podcast Ft. Isaac Stewart, author of Monsters Don’t Wear Underpants(Board book)
We have so much fun chatting with Kids’ author Isaac Stewart. He is the author of the soon to be released board book “Monsters Don’t Wear Underpants“, which will be released in August 2020 by Familius. This is a super fun conversation that celebrates the many benefits of reading aloud to our kids, and wearing underwear!
Isaac Stewart worked for over ten years in the animation and video game industries before becoming the art director for Dragonsteel Entertainment. In addition to his work at Dragonsteel, Isaac has created maps and symbols for some of the world’s most-renowned fantasy authors, including Tad Williams and Brandon Sanderson.
Tune in now! You’ll love listening about the monsters as much as we did!
Learn more about Isaac Stewart
During the course of his life, Isaac Stewart has had more dreams than there are freckles on his back. When he was eight, he wanted to invent faster-than-light travel. At eleven he dreamt of being the first person on Mars. At thirteen he thought there could be nothing better than owning a sled-dog team and winning the Iditarod. Despite these passing obsessions, one dream never left him: He wanted to write and illustrate books.
Since then, Isaac has lived in the Philippines as a missionary, graduated with a BFA from BYU, and has worked for over a decade in the video game and entertainment industries. Though he hasn’t yet made it to Mars, he loves to travel and has lived in Germany twice. With Kenneth Pike, Isaac co-authored Jacob’s Journal of Doom, which was released on July 31st, 2012 from Deseret Book. Isaac is also the artist responsible for the interior illustrations in the Mistborn Trilogy as well as many of the interior illustrations in the New York Times Best-Seller The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.
Isaac hasn’t found the sled dog team of his dreams, but he did marry the woman of his dreams. They live in Utah with their four children. Maybe someday when the kids are big enough, Isaac will hook them up to a sled and see how far they can pull it.
