Kidlit411 2018 Banner Illustration

Posted on Feb 9, 2018

In January, offered the opportunity to illustrate the banner for their site, Facebook group, & Twitter Profile. Below is the banner I created for them. It focuses on the frequent interviews of children’s book authors & illustrators and the diversity found within the kidlit industry. Following is the full illustration in its non-branded form (Note the way the handling of the music notes correspond to the bird speaking them).
