Children’s illustration is one of our favourite specialties at Howell Edwards. We have worked on a number of children’s books for different authors, all in different styles and across various media. We love bringing stories to life through character design, shaping backgrounds, and developing worlds.
We were commissioned by Diana Lwanga, a Ugandan author, to produce illustrations for her educational programme Mukwano Gw’abato, a preservation of Ugandan Heritage and culture especially the Baganda culture through songs, poems, riddles and lots more.
We began with character design, logo and branding design for the project, before designing and developing a website with e-commerce integration. Diana’s first publication is a CD album of Ugandan Nursery Rhymes, which we designed and developed the cover artwork for, and is available for purchase through the website.
We loved working with Diana, the context of the project allowed us to work in a style that we love, with extremely colourful imagery and motifs. We are very passionate about working with authors who are actively trying to bring representation and diversity to children’s publications, and we loved Diana’s dedication to bringing the Ugandan culture to young children and their education.
If you’re looking for an illustrator to work on your children’s books, we would absolutely love to hear from you.
