Jack Foster – Designer

Christian KidLit illustrator, with a heart for kids and a passion for illustrating. I especially love drawing animals and seeing kids smile.

Overview

Thanks for checking out my profile. Living in Tennessee with an office overlooking the mountains is not only peaceful, but an inspiring blessing. As a kidLit illustrator, I have done a few books for organizations like The Ronald McDonald house and Paws for Effect. I have also illustrated a book about the dog that was in W. Bruce Cameron's major motion picture, A Dog's Way Home.

I have illustrated over 100 published children's books.


I have a whimsical style, full of bright colors. I love to add humor whenever I can. I get the most positive comments about the character's expressions. It's something that I work hard at achieving. About half of the books I have illustrated are for publishers, and the other half for indie authors. I keep in constant communication with the author, and share the layout of each illustration along the process so that changes can be made before the final art. I take care in each and every book I illustrate, and joyfully celebrate with the author when the book is complete.

I give Jack Foster ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5 STARS). He has illustrated all four of my children's books and his talent never disappoints.. I highly recommend him as an illustrator and formatter. He is easy to work with and always, always exceeds my expectations as an illustrator.

He always stays on schedule and again and stays in contact until the project is finished. ~Janice Blanchett
