Behind the Scenes: ABCs of New York City Neighborhoods (book)

ABCs of New York City Neighborhoods, my first children’s book that I illustrated is published and now available for purchase on Amazon!

ABC's of New York City Neighborhoods is available on Amazon



I worked closely with the author, Achala Choulur, to help bring her vision to life. This entailed brainstorming sessions, researching and finding inspiration, creating a storyboard, drawing rough pencil sketches, drawing the polished illustrations digitally and then finally laying it out in the right format required by the publisher.

Here’s a behind the scenes peek showing a few rough sketch ideas and the final digital illustrations.

While there are many steps to writing, illustrating and publishing a children’s book, it is a fun process and I enjoy it!

  • Wonderful to see this beautiful book available now! I loved the sneak peek into the process of creating the illustrations. Seeing your sketches and how they evolved and developed into the finished, full-color beautiful pictures is fascinating!
