Scott DuBar – Designer

Illustrator and graphic designer with 10 years of experience in children's illustration for picture books, chapter books, and magazines.


I am an illustrator and graphic designer specializing in editorial, packaging, and children's illustration. Recent published work includes over 2,500 illustrations for the 30th Anniversary Edition of the Brain Quest series of educational workbooks and deck cards and Cute Baby Animals and Unicorn Pizza Party for the new Scratch Magic series of scratch-off activity books from Get Creative 6. My first chapter book, Chicken Feathers, was released by Clear Fork Publishing in early 2020. My first picture book, Short Pump Bump, was published December 15, 2017 by Belle Isle Books. I have also had the pleasure of illustrating the cover art along with handling the packaging design for a series of audiobooks narrated by award-winning storyteller Jim Weiss. Titles include Just So Stories, Tales From Cultures Far and Near, Pharaohs and Queens of Ancient Egypt, and George Washington, First in the Hearts of His Countrymen.

I have a great love for bringing a joyful, childlike energy to my work and take great delight in bringing an author's characters to life in pleasantly unexpected ways.

Clients include Workman Publishing, Get Creative 6 Publishing, Well-Trained Mind Press, Belle Isle Books, Clear Fork Publishing, Pennsylvania Department of Education, Mike's HARDER, The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, CFA Institute, Utah Adventure Journal, and FORE Magazine.

“I am so fortunate to have found Scott online; though we’ve never met in person, we collaborate virtually with great success. He makes every illustration special, and he frequently exceeds expectations as he envisions something more interesting, humorous or beautiful than what had been ordered. Given his talent, professionalism, and versatility, I recommend him enthusiastically.”

It took quite a long time to get it finished. It was put off and put off many many times as Scott had other irons in the fire. Upon completion, I noticed his wording error.

And it is going on or getting close to 2 years. This project should ...
