Olga Urbanowicz – Designer

A passionate illustrator specializing in story-driven children's books. My passion is illustrating nature, animals and playful characters!

Overview

Hi, my name is Olga. I am an illustrator living in a small town just outside of Montreal. I studied illustration and design in school.


I really love illustrating unique characters, animals, nature and story driven scenes.

My passion for children book illustrations has reached a new level with the picture book titled "A Habitat for the Little Bat" (in my portfolio below). This book tells the story of a girl and her mom and the preservation of the habitat of the little brown bat.


I work closely with clients so they are fully involved throughout the creative process. I understand how daunting the creative process can be, so I will work with you closely until the your ideas are beautifully illustrated. I always make sure to update the author regularly with sketches and follow up on the work done.


I also work as an art director in the video game industry. I lead a team of artists and have a very good understanding of art creation and art principles. I'm experienced in following creative direction from clients and I also understand the importance of budget and deadlines. I can pull out compelling illustrations out of short briefs because I know how to bring your vision to reality.


I can adapt to a variety of art styles, feel free to write to me with any request or questions!


An average illustrated picture book takes me 16 weeks to complete with a minimum estimate of 5500$ CAD.
