Saving Netty Children’s Book Illustrations

This book design project ground to a halt when the author’s original illustrator didn’t work out.

I thought, “Hey, I bet I could do this!” So I took over the illustration portion of the book process.

The book features 15 illustrations that follow the real-life story of Bruce Thomas and his family as they rescue a tangled-up pelican on Old Hickory Lake in Tennessee.

In addition to completing the illustrations, I worked on the interior and cover design of the book. I set up the print-ready files for both the paperback and hardcover versions.

The book can be purchased here on Amazon and other online retailers.
