Samples: “The Guided Path” Illustration

Below is a sample (in my cartoon-style) of a spot for the “Heartmatters” column I create illustrations for bi-monthly. All of these stories are uplifting and faith-building. I am blessed to be able to read this and then created illustrations to enhance the story.

April Spot Illustration for Highlights magazine

I have a little, fun spot illustration in this month’s (April ’15) issue of Highlights magazine (below)! I enjoyed adding my spin to this experiment called “Eye Challenge” for the science section of the magazine. I hope the kids have fun doing it. I know I had fun depicting the experiment!
