I See Me! creates fun and fabulous kids’ books that can be customized with the child’s name and often their photo too. I was hired to create a new book set on a farm. It was so much fun! They wanted some custom typography for the animal sounds, and the various signs around the farm. The “face import” feature was a challenge – I had to allow for a photo of the child to be incorporated into the illustration so needed to make the poses and the outfits work with any gender or ethnicity or face shape that might be submitted. It was a bit of a mind-bender and thankfully I See Me! has amazing coders on staff who picked up where I left off and pulled it all together.
Shown here I’ve inserted an illustrated face, but also see below a screengrab from iseeme.com where you can see how a photo of an actual child is incorporated.
I’m super excited to order some copies for some little kiddoes I know! Oh, and there are stickers, lunchboxes, puzzles and a colouring book available, too.
Thanks, Kathy, for the shout-out!
Below is a double page spread from A LOVE LETTER FROM GOD that Laura Watson illustrated.
I received a wonderful update note from Laura Watson who was featured on Illustrator Saturday last year. http://kathytemean.wordpress.com/2013/08/10/illustrator-saturday-laura-watson/
Here’s what Laura wrote:
“I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful profile you did on me last fall. It led to at least one awesome job, that I know of, and tons of great exposure. Thank you so much!”
“I have a couple of recent projects that are now printed:
Farm Friends for I See Me! Inc. Personalized Children’s Books (http://www.iseeme.com/my-farm-friends-personalized-book.html#Tab-A-2 ) and A Love Letter from God by P.K. Hallinan (for Ideals Children’s Books.”
“I’ve also been working on projects for Capstone, Orca Books (in Canada) and a couple of self-publishing clients too. This has been my busiest year ever, so far. Just pausing to catch my breath and update my portfolio, etc. this week.”

Well, I’ve been refusing to admit it, but it looks like summer’s pretty much kaput. So, to celebrate the summer that was, here’s a little kid Kanikapila on the the beach (the word means a spontaneous Hawaiian jam session). Having never been to Hawaii, I have this romanticized idea that it’s all tiki sculptures, hangin ten, surf style, pineapple, and stuff like that. Even though I did see The Descendants, where the sky was dark and grey all the time and people seemed to have all the same problems they do here, and didn’t even stick flowers in their hair all that much.
