The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the Eyes of others only a Green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and by these I shall not regulate my proportions; and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the Eyes of the Man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.—William Blake

Welcome!

The purpose of The Illustration Department is to provide personalized guidance for illustrators of all experience levels.

Through live, one-on-one discussions with me, participants will:

  • Discuss and assess their creative processes.
  • Review their strengths and identify their areas for improvement.
  • Gain further insight into the practice of illustration, including: copyright protection, contracts, and marketing.
  • Gain a clearer understanding of the inner-workings of an art director and a children’s book art department.

The Illustration Department is a source of information and support; in order that illustrators may see a clearer path to their creative goals.
