Illustrated Books

A wide variety of my styles are illustrated in the projects below. From Andy in the Attic to Bob Tales, I have enjoyed working with clients with different needs and conceptual stages when they've come to me with their stories.  I have worked on book layout, illustrations, cover designs and printing production. 

 

Bob Tales: Land of the Woody Warbles

Susan approached me with a finished story that she was looking to have illustrated. We worked closely together to conceive of character designs, book and cover layouts, as well as extra marketing materials including a full spread map of the story. 

Andy in the Attic: Finding a Home

I was approached by Raven's Lantern Publishing to illustrate a children's fantasy book that would reach young readers ages 6-10 years. I had an outline story which was then fleshed out by their editor, and given direction for book size/layout. I created over 50 full color illustrations and designed the characters for the story, including the environments and lighting of each drawing. 

Daisy Goes to Egypt

Mira had a fun story about a young girl who gets to travel to another country to experience some beautiful wonders of the world. We designed the book for young children with bright colors, while still illustrating the true nature of these locations. Designed for print and e-publishing, this book was self-published. 

Isabelle Bunny

This was a combined work with my husband. Ben wanted to create a simple, soft illustration style with this story aimed at 0-5 years. He had created the story and characters, and commissioned me to take the drawings and add color and texture, as well as design the layout and cover. The finished book was later self-published.
