Our New York-based client approached us to do a set of illustrations for Mikey and the Magic Medicine. A children’s book tackling how germs around us work.
I was very excited for the project and tackled it head on. It was very easy for us to do the style that he wanted, was very familiar and we knew it like the back of our hands.
The project, as usual, turned out to be a success! It was not only because we are already an expert in illustrating children’s book, but also because the client was superb in providing instructions and feedback.
Me and my daughter are now excitedly waiting for our copy of the book.
Children’s storybooks rely on great visuals and intricate use of symbolism to captivate and to inspire. I may not be a doctor or a nurse like a character in my client’s book Ana Tomy, but you can say that I practically saved his life.
Unsatisfied with another illustrator’s work, he contacted me to create the illustrations for all of his 13 books. And like an ambulance, I came to the rescue. I sketched, and used colorful thick and thin line arts, balancing the colors with highlights and shadows. I fixed all the books’ illness of poor illustration, and everyone was happy.

Projects could come from the least expected of places. This time, Ms. Vinita Ramtri found us on Twitter.
The book was written by both Vinita and her son Rocco, when he was still 7 years old. Both of them just love adventure and they also love writing and travelling via train. Does the book is about the 50 States of the US – their history that makes them interesting, and their prominent landmarks.
I was really ecstatic about doing the illustrations.
Vinita self-published the book and it’s available on Amazon.
Minecraft’s eight-book long series introduces children to the 8-bit protagonist named Alex, who has a larger than 8-bit personality. Take a sneak peek on the adventure within the book cover through my attractive front page illustrations.
With the goal of enticing children into purchasing the books, my art was based on each of the character’s personality and what the story would be about. The elements were carefully-chosen to maintain the veil of mystery and to keep the audience wanting more. My client was more than satisfied with the final output, and I’m glad. Also knowing that I contributed in his fulfillment as a publisher is a great accomplishment for me. See their books here.
