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!
Contact us to assign or license art. We’re happy to help you find the perfect artist or gorgeous images for your project!

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.
