I love illustrating children's graphics, books, and products. I've illustrated a majority characters for the children's line of PFDs called "Puddle Jumpers" from 2012-2016. I also designed and managed all products, graphics, and patterns for the Coleman Youth line. I am looking for additional illustration work because I enjoy it so much, I would love to work with you to create the illustrations you need.
