Children’s Book Illustration

Whether you are writing the next best-selling children’s book or compiling a book of crazy little critters the inclusion of some custom children’s book illustration will set it apart from other competing publications.

How do we get started on children’s book illustration?

My cartoon illustrations begin life as a series of pencil sketches and compositions that we can sit down and discuss.

We can storyboard them together or I’m quite happy to take your story outline and come up with a storyboard myself that I can sit down and discuss with you.

The next stage is to digitise these characters and scenes and create as vector illustrations, which give us great flexibility on the project.

We can then work on the layouts of the pages of your book and position and resize the characters and elements as required.

Writing children’s books

Although I’m not a writer of Children’s books or stories, I am more than happy to add in ideas or suggestions if you’d like me to and get those create cogs whirring with your stories!

What do we need to get started?

To help me pop together an accurate quote for work, please supply me with as much of the following as possible…

  • A short synopsis/blurb of your story – no need to send the whole thing (although it would make good bedtime reading!)
  • Number of pages
  • Size of book or illustration(s)
  • If you require book page layout/design
  • Estimated due date
  • An idea of budget – If I have this information, if my quote is more what you had planned we can work together to amend the colour, the style, and size and/or amount of illustrations
  • A list of the cartoons/illustrations you require along with a short description as to what happens in the image
