Book Illustrator Calgary

Renowned American author and illustrator Norman Rockwell once said, “No man with a conscience can just bat out illustrations. He's got to put all his talent and feeling into them!”

What does this mean? Well, no matter what kind of illustrations you require, one element is absolutely critical: care. Whether they’re larger-than-life, full-color illustrations for a children’s picture book, watercolors or line drawings for quieter literary fare, or small-but-memorable illustrations for the chapter headings in a book for adults, great book illustrations take great thought and effort to create. Of course, the trick of the truly skilled book illustrator is to make these illustrations appear effortless, so that the reader can enjoy them without having to think about it too much. This is just one reason why book illustration is such a difficult skill to master, and why it’s likely been impossible to find a satisfactory illustrator for your book… until now.

Here on Reedsy, we subscribe to Norman Rockwell’s view. That’s why all of our professional book illustrators are utterly dedicated to their work, and have the outstanding portfolios to show for it. Some of these illustrators have spent years, even decades, honing their artistic skills, and now they’re looking for new and challenging projects to tackle. So if your book still needs visuals and you’re desperately seeking a book illustrator in Calgary, sign up for Reedsy today — you’ll be amazed by the “talent and feeling” you perceive in their work.
