His children's book is an ever-evolving, illustrated project created with an openness to social feedback and ultimately social funding for production. </p> <p>Dwight agreed to speak with me about the creative project and answer some questions on his goals, aesthetic and the leverage of social media during the design and <a href="http://design.org/illustration"
