Shannan Stanke Article and Glimpse at Children’s Book In Development

Posted on Oct 1, 2020

I’ve been working on a picture book with a heart-breaking, yet very important story on CTE with support for the Concussion Legacy Foundation. The author, Shannan Stanke, and a promotional character illustration of the late Greg Stanke for the book I’m illustrating/designing serves as the feature article of Area Woman Magazine this month. Please take time to read the article on Shannan & Greg Stanke; she’s a really wonderful person that I’ve greatly enjoyed working with. Looking forward to releasing this book in 2021.
