We love illustrating books, especially when they’re colourful, meaningful children’s books that allow us to work in our favourite styles. We’ve worked with Dr Tamara Pizzoli and The English Schoolhouse publishing house for several years now, on so many collaborations that we’ve almost lost count. We are big believers in Tamara’s mission to diversify children’s literature and provide representation for young people, and we love being able to contribute our illustration to her cause and bring life to her words.
One of two books that we’ve illustrated for Tamara and The English Schoolhouse that have been picked up for publishing by internationally renowned publishing house MacMillan Publishers through their children’s books imprint Farrar, Straus and Giroux, is M is for Mohawk: An Alphabet of Fresh Hairstyles. We really enjoyed working on the simultaneously diverse and uniform illustrations on each page, and we’re thrilled that MacMillan liked it enough to acquire the concept for publication.
We loved working on this book with Tamara, and we can’t wait to work on the new version that’s being published by MacMillan. If you’re looking for illustration for your children’s book, we would love to hear from you.
