New Publishing Contract!

I received some very exciting news this week! I was emailed by the senior designer of Capstone Publishing to illustrate a new title due out in both the educational and trade markets Fall of 2015!  I was excited to hear that they found me on It's crazy how I have been advertising on that site for about 5 years, even taking a two year hiatus at one point, but then thought to give it another try since some other people have had some success. The price to renew went up $150 but there must have been a reason because I received a job from Heinemann Publishing and now this one from Capstone this year. I guess I made the right decision to give it another try! Keep checking back for updates!

Directory of Illustration Ad

I finished designing my page for the Directory of Illustration. Submitted it today, phew that's a weight off my shoulders! Here's what it will look like… I have to wait until January to get the full book. Hope this will work and reach a lot of illustration buyers because it did cost quite a bit….fingers crossed!
