“I grew up in a secluded Victorian resort town in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania, which was the perfect recipe for a lifetime love of vintage objects with soul and playing make-believe in the forest.”
— Kelly Anne Dalton

 

Watch Kelly Anne make art magic on her iPad.
Welcome to Adventures in Idaland. Kelly Anne has crafted an entire world around the main character, Ida. With her mouse pal Scout, Ida embarks on adventures around the world as she helps animals solve all sorts of problems.
Together with our Toy and Game agent Riley Wilkinson, we’ve developed an entertainment concept ripe for a future animated series, as well as toy concepts ready for license. Contact Riley to learn more.

 

Kelly Anne just created this lovely piece for the very first assignment for my Illustrating Children’s Books course.

What do Anaheim, Yamanashi, and Quebec City have in common?

We’re all aching to travel again–the anticipation while packing a bag, the thrill of hopping on a plane and hugging far-off friends once more, so we thought we’d share some charming illustrated maps by our artists in a variety of styles to get you in the mood. I am predicting a huge travel and resort boom for 2022, and that’s great for illustrators who create stylish maps. Enjoy the show!

Erica Root

Pre-order Erica’s amazing debut author/illustrator book A Year of Weeks: 52 Awesome Weeks of Trying New Things (Running Press), out next month.

Full of charming illustrations and inspiring prompts, A Year of Weeksis an interactive, imagination-sparking road map for a year of trying new things—broken into fifty-two exciting, achievable activities.

 

 

Read early reviews of Erica’s book:
What a great idea. Erica’s illustrations and insights together are so wonderfully digestible, whimsical, and peace- and curiosity-inducing. From the first time I saw Erica’s work I saw her precious mind in the turn of a pencil stroke, her patience and humor, and that voice is right there in this book. Each activity and illustration gifts me a totally stress-free task to engage me further as a person, as a mom, as someone who wants to do more and is sometimes so overwhelmed by the wait and rush of this ride. This book makes me feel younger. Get it for yourself. And everyone you like. And a special one for someone you loathe. It’s a win-win. ―Selma Blair, actor and activist

 

Sometimes our most inspired moments come from the simplest challenges. A Year of Weeks is chock full of weekly uncomplicated, fun exercises to wake up our creativity, think outside the box, and dream big. Stunningly illustrated and exquisitely hand-lettered, Erica Root’s own artistic style lends an encouraging backdrop to this book of weekly activities.
 ―Lisa Congdon, illustrator and author

 

A Year of Weeks encourages us to do a very simple but difficult thing: try something new every week. With engaging illustrations and thoughtful prompts, this journal inspires us to stretch ourselves each day—ensuring that by the end of the year, we’ve experienced the lessons and growth necessary to head into the next with confidence and an open heart.―Meera Lee Patel, author of Create Your Own Calm, Start Where You Are, and My Friend Fear

 

 

 


 

Zoë Ingram

 

 

Welcome to the wonderful world of painting with gouache, with the creative guidance of popular artist and illustrator Zoë Ingram.

 

In this comprehensive beginner’s guide, Zoë shares everything she possibly can about getting started with gouache painting. Why gouache? Because this exciting paint medium creates opaque effects making it more vibrant and graphic than traditional watercolours, meaning you can layer it, paint on dark backgrounds and much more.

 

Already translated into 6 different languages and flying off the shelves!

 

 

 

 


 

 

A follow up to Sarah’s incredible bestsellers Herstory and Wild Lives, comes another gem about fifty amazing kids who changed the world. A beautifully illustrated collection of inspiring short biographies sure to empower and motivate in equal measure.

Want to know which market is the most progressive and positive, IMHO?

I often say that the most positive and progressive change occurring right now is happening in children’s book publishing. Case in point: This Little Environmentalist and This Little Rainbow (Love is Love) board books illustrated by Daniel Roode for Little Simon, and Baby’s First Kind Words illustrated by Hsinping Pan for Storey Publishing. These teach little children about climate, LGBTQIA+, and kindness. It makes me so happy.

Flora Waycott beautifully illustrated this shaped board book from Chronicle. Each page reveals a new topping. Lots of fun for little hands.
Exciting news!
The second in the series, Made with Love: Donuts will be available this July!

 

Hsinping Pan’s charm, rich color and great storytelling are on display in her newest illustrated book for Storey Publishing

 

Rebecca Jones is constantly busy illustrating children’s products, and you can see why. Her paint technique, her pretty colors, and happy worlds are always in demand. From Pan Macmillan.

 

We wanted to show you this charming art that John Coulter recently created for a pitch. His bold colors, adorable characters, and vintage style are perfect for children’s book illustrations.
