Children’s Books can be a variety of styles. Each project is a custom process. We will first determine the foundation of your project by exploring the purpose of your book, your vision for creating the book.
Schedule a consultation via phone or zoom where we can discuss possibilities and most of all get educated about what is involved to create and publish the book of your dreams.
Illustration services include:
Custom artwork to visually represent your story, cover design, book layout, story editing, and support through the entire creative process.
After you submit your story document, the first step is to design the book layout and determine the accompanying illustrations. Each project includes all phases of illustration: starting with rough drafts and concept sketches to get feedback and direction.
Next is preliminary drawings, full color illustrations, and all revisions along the way to the “perfect” end result of a formatted digital file ready to provide for publishing and online sales.
