Overview

Hi there! I’m Brittany, an illustrator with three years of experience in the delightful world of children’s books and educational illustration. Prior to this, I obtained my BFA from Brigham Young University - Idaho and completed a certificate in 3D animation from Animation Mentor. There are more similarities between these two disciplines than one might think! Both emphasize visual storytelling, which, as a reader, is a great asset to deeper understanding and connection with the characters and themes in each story.


Once deadlines and finances are set in order, I love to read through the script for each project and discuss goals and vision for each story with the writer. I want to know who the characters are and what they struggle with. Who needs to hear this story and what do they need to learn from it? I then create rough character sketches and storyboards with those goals in mind, planning out how to visually communicate the story alongside the script. After approval, I produce color comps, refined sketches, and the final illustrations. Each step of the process is presented for approvals before progressing to the next step to ensure you are in love with your book!
