I recently received a printed copy of one of the books that I did the cover art for! And as an added benefit, this art happens to have a lot of books in it! I had created this tree a couple of years ago for another project and it never got used. I liked the image too much to let it go to waste and when this title came along, I was able to tweak and customize things so it would be a great fit for this book. I can't decide if i had more fun drawing the red tree or creating the different characters on the book covers.
For those who don't know, ELL stands for English Language Learner. Personally, i think this sounds like a fabulous way to learn a second language and if I ever try to learn one, I'd like to do so by reading picture books! Especially if they contain awesome artwork as well. For more information about the title itself, please visit Corwin Press.
