Shine So Bright

Opportunity

Illustrate and design the layout for the children’s book Shine So Bright, written by Timothy Willard.

Solution

I worked closely with the author of Shine So Bright, Timothy Willard to make the character Lo Lo Star come to life. I read his story and drew an illustration for each page to go alongside his words. I illustrated and designed the entire layout of the book. I worked closely with the printer after submitting the files according to their specifications for our chosen format, to ensure the quality of the final product. This involved numerous phone calls and revisions. After almost two years of working on this project we launched a Kickstarter to raise the money to self publish and print the book. We were fully funded which allowed us to print and sell hundreds of copies of Shine So Bright.
