Time to reveal the cover for the first children’s book I’ve illustrated: Tale of the Spectacular Spectacles. Book One of the Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore series, written by author, K. Kibbee.
What do you all think?
I am really happy with the final reveal for the cover. The illustration is my own and the book cover design was done by the talented, Star Foos.
My goal with the vibrance on the cover was that I wanted to draw in children’s eyes and attention. I think that, mixed with the fun fonts that Star chose, and we certainly have a shot with reaching out to our target audience of 7-10 year olds for these books. My hope is that the adorable character of Theodore pulls them in and K. Kibbee‘s amazing story keeps them there hooked, enjoying the inner illustrations along the way and needing to find out what happens to this little Corgi pup by story’s end. It’s definitely a page-turner!
This is not only my first time illustrating for children’s books, it is also the first children’s book series that my publisher, Incorgnito Publishing, has put out there into the world. To commemorate this momentous event, they came up with a new imprint and logo for the children’s series called, Corgi Bits. I love their little logo!
Well, that is all the news I have thus far for this project. I will let you all know as soon as I find out when the book will hit shelves. I can’t wait! Below is a picture of the finished cover illustration pre-title, just so you can get an idea of how it went from point A to point B. Enjoy!
