Peter Fasolino

Peter Fasolino – Designer

Illustrator of Children's books as well as humorous art. Graphic entertainer would be an alternative name for my job description.

Overview


My freelance career has been most notably illustration involving Children's books, Editorial and Advertising. Humor is a fundamental element in my work as well as designing a cohesive narrative for books. However, humor is not involved with a recent large scale ongoing project for Pandia press which I am involved in.

I illustrated an immersive study history book for elementary-age children. This History Quest series places the students in a time machine as if they personally met historical figures.
I find collaboration has just as much reward as the art itself. The samples I have chosen on my profile are indicative of that collaboration with editor and art director.

Clients include:
Golden Books, McGraw-Hill School division, Nickelodeon, Weekly Reader Corp., The Nation Magazine, Forbes, Harcourt Publishers, The New York Times and Oxford University Press among others.

An excellent communicator...Pete took the time to fully understand the project and asked just the right questions in order to produce the best product possible. The cover of our book is amazing. Thank you for an incredible job well done!
