When I’ve totally invested in a book via my illustrations, I want that book to do well. Not only for myself, because of course I’ll be earning a modest royalty on each sale and that is a part of how I earn a living, but because I want any author I’ve worked with to be rewarded for what will often be years of hard, dedicated work — and years, quite probably, of building up to starting it, planning, thinking, dreaming (these are the people who didn’t just dream about it — they did it!)
