I recently asked Tequitia to make a few images for children’s books. She pulled upon her childhood to create these images which I’m sure will blow you away as they did for us. I encourage you to contact us to assign her, as she will book up quickly.

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

 

 

“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.

My dad was a mapmaker who’d spend summers outdoors detailing aerial photos. I’d pass time in the car, drawing creatures and folks entangled in perplexing drama. I’m still pretty good at drawing in a moving car.
