More about children’s illustration
Historically and commercially, children’s illustration is a hugely important category of artwork. The best characters, stories and worlds we experience as children stay with us for life and illustration is vitally important in establishing that bond.
Children’s illustrators work in wide variety of styles as they come up with inventive ways to create the characters and capture the narratives of the authors and publishers they work with. By defining the look and feel of a story, the illustrator is pivotal in turning one book into a series, and a series into a franchise that could live on for generations.
