Welcome to my illustration process!
As a children's book illustrator, I believe in creating magical worlds through my artwork. I'd be happy to share my process with you. Here's how it typically works:

1. Gathering Information:
To begin, I rely on your valuable input. Share the text and any reference materials you have for the book. Understanding your vision and the essence of the story is crucial for me to create illustrations that resonate with your ideas.

2. Storyboarding:
I'll craft a storyboard, mapping out the entire book through small, simple sketches. This helps visualize the placement of objects and characters in each frame, ensuring a cohesive narrative flow.

3. Character Design:
Characters play a pivotal role in connecting with young readers. I'll develop unique and engaging character designs that embody the essence of your story. Their appearance and personalities will be carefully crafted to captivate and resonate with your audience.

4 Detailed Sketches and Color Palette:
With the storyboard approved, I'll move on to creating more detailed sketches for each page. These sketches will provide a clearer representation of the final illustrations. Additionally, I'll present you with 2-3 color palette options, or work with your specific color preferences, to infuse the illustrations with the desired mood and atmosphere.

Final Illustrations:
Once the sketches and color palette are approved, I'll commence creating the final illustrations for the book. Depending on your preference, I can send them to you for approval as they are completed or provide a complete set upon finishing. Collaboration and feedback are key during this phase to ensure the illustrations align with your vision.
I pride myself on delivering illustrations that surpass expectations and transport readers to captivating worlds. By following this structured process, I aim to create a harmonious collaboration that brings your stories to life in a visually captivating and enchanting manner. Your satisfaction and the connection with your readers are my ultimate goals.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or specific preferences. Together, we can create a masterpiece that will delight and inspire young minds.
