Children’s Storybook Illustrations

One Thing Right © Colin Shanafelt

A single illustration has the ability to tell an entire tale and has been used since the dawn or history to do so. Whether drawn for children or adults, images speak a universal language that all can understand. Color illustration has the power to stir emotions while black & white illustrations are the clearest and most direct intimately drawing the viewer in in a way color can’t. The right drawing will jump out and grab you by the throat—but in a nice way.
