Have you written a fabulous children’s book that needs some fantastic artwork? My name is Michelle Rene Goodhew and I am an experienced children’s book illustrator.

I will work with you to create beautiful images that are perfect for your story. Take a look at some of my previous work below.

I draw all my images by hand with pencil. It all starts with a small sketch and or idea, I work at it, revise, edit, and in the end it becomes what I had in my head, or better.

  • I take care with each scene to make sure placement of all elements are correct and layout accordingly allowing for text placement.
  • When the sketches are ready, I transfer them to photoshop for digital painting.
  • I then send the concepts to you for feedback when the painting is complete.
  • I wait for your feedback to begin editing.
  • Once the concepts have been edited, the illustrations are finalized and sent to you for review.
  • A last round of editing occurs before the illustrations will be finalized.


What I will need from you

  • I require a copy of your manuscript and will need to know which illustration options you prefer.
  • A description of each scene will help me to create an accurate quote.
