I Illustrated a Children's Book!
I have a little story for you today.
Last January one of my lovely clients referred me to her friend who had recently authored a children's book. This was a new project for me, and I hoped my artwork would be a good fit for the author, Nancy Rivest Green.
The first time I spoke with Nancy on the phone, she read her story to me over the phone, and the whole book came to life in front of my eyes. I could picture the little main character Rosa living with her family in Mexico, I could see the vibrant plants popping up throughout the pages, and I visualized the brightly colored lettering as Rosa practiced her ABC's. I could see it all, and was so excited to work with Nancy to bring her writing to life!
Here we are, about 18 months later. Through character development, a lot of feedback, and working with a wonderful publisher, my 33 pages of illustrations will be published this year!
I am so excited to share that "Rosa Gets It Right" will be published late summer or early fall, and Nancy and I cannot wait to share our work with you.
I'll be receiving the hard proof copy in the mail this week to review, (Update: Now available!) and I can't imagine how exciting it's going to be to open that package! Ahh! 😍
If you would like to learn a bit more about the book, please enjoy this description from the back cover of "Rosa Gets It Right"
I also talk a bit more about the process + the book in this short video below for you to watch!
I will continue to keep you updated about the book's release & where you can find it💛
Thank you for having so much excitement + love surrounding this book! It has made me so happy to know that many of you are looking forward to adding it to your book collection or gifting it to a child that will enjoy it!
