Children’s Books


If you are looking for a book cover or a complete set of illustrations, it’s crucial that the art tells your story and forms an emotional bond with the audience. The use of meticulous attention to detail and skillful techniques in shading and light sources can truly bring your children’s book to life. Our illustrators, who work in-house, are proficient in leading design software and technology, and have extensive experience in children’s books, editorial, comic books, storyboard, and concept art illustrations. With their versatility, they can adapt to any illustration style.


The illustration spreads across 2 full pages, typically with text on the illustration.


Full page illustrations are a single page with the illustration extending right to the edge of the page. This leaves no white areas around the illustration.


Just as the name suggests, half page illustrations only take up half a page and allows for the integration of text below or above the illustration.


It is an illustration used by itself, usually to accompany text, but not as large as a feature illustration. Typically spot illustrations will take up a quarter of a page.

Brainstorm Together

We will help you create a storyboard or create a plan for the illustrations to go along with your manuscript.

Approve Sketches

Sketches are made prior to the coloring and shading phase of the illustration. Once you approve the sketches, your illustration is created.


Once illustrations are created and finished, we will work on the text placement and formatting of the book. You are free to use the illustrations as you please.
