For the past months I’ve been tagging #NalaBook1 on Instagram while working with an author N. Cox. I’m happy to announce that I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to have my illustrations be published for the third time. The first time I got the opportunity to work on any books was in high school and I revisited the concepts in this older post.
I would like to thank Stefani, who lives in my neighbourhood and is the president of the block association, for granting me the opportunity. She even referred me to another author already.
As of now, I’ll continue to collaborate with the current author to produce more books so look out for that. This first one I feel was a huge test so the next one will be lots better (Publishing for the Kindle was an interesting process). She even inspired me to do one of my own (it was on my 30 things to do before 30 list). I really appreciate this because usually illustrators are the afterthought of books and I felt quite involved.
Here’s some of the sketches and post-production that I’ve done over the past months, enjoy but you really ought to find the book yourself ;).
