Not So ORDINARY girl!


I got a chance to illustrate a series of kids books a while back and it's getting published on the 21st of this month! Here's the amazon link

Not so Ordinary Girl, Ballerina Weather Girl

Not so Ordinary Girl, Miss Matched

Not so Ordinary Girl, Don't Chicken Out!

I did the interior illustrations for only the last one, "Don't Chicken Out!" the rest were done by another artist.

Here's some of the early development work that went into creating the covers, for some reason I'm having some trouble locating the pages of the interior for book 3, but I thought that you would still like a peek into the process.

I got to read the manuscript and just come up with my own style for the character which was a lot of fun! The watercolor sketch was inspired by Vance Gerry, a Disney Story artist who had a show up in the studio when I was doing these.

These are gorgeous! I like that they're not completely pink like many other books for girls.

Pity you didn't get to do the interior illustrations for the first two, but from what I can see thos for the third book are lovely. ;)
