I am so happy to finally reveal a project that I have been working on for the past 7 months, Kate Butler's "More Than Magic." This is probably the most difficult book I have ever  illustrated, but it was well worth it because my work has never been better. Some projects just push you to another level, and this one certainly did that for me. So, here's a sneak peak of some of the illustrations I made. The book will be released in the Summer of 2015 =) Thu, 18 Jun 2015 21:45:58 +0100 http://www.childrensillustrators.com/illustrator-details/izzipics/id=2389/blog/post=2287/New-Illustrations-for-More-Than-Magic/ http://www.childrensillustrators.com/illustrator-details/izzipics/id=2389/blog/post=2287/New-Illustrations-for-More-Than-Magic/ Ellen Melon Book Finally, I received a copy of Ellen Melon, a children's book that I illustrated a few years ago, and I just LOVE how it turned out! The book is in the process of getting a major distribution deal so I'll have more to share soon, but for now check out the illos and the seeds!   A copy of the book and an accompanying children's gardening kit can be purchased on the official Ellen Melon website.
