My first magazine cover! On newsstands now, babybug magazine’s January 2017 issue has my snowy illustration on the cover – and for the cute poem “On the Swing” inside 🙂 If you spot it on a shelf somewhere, do me a favour and take a snap, email to laura@w-illo.com? It’s hard to find here in Canada. Thanks in advance!! xo

Happy Halloweeeeeen!!!

We Are All the Best Chef!

26 Oct

lw_bestchef_yikes_1000Repeat client Yeamoonsa Bien House, an educational publishing house in South Korea, gave me this wacky and adorable story to illustrate. It’s about a restaurant run by animals, and the food is HORRIBLE. Nobody is happy. So, the staff go on a hunt for “The Best Chef”. Each applicant has his or her own specialty (unfortunately the silly quail’s specialty is worms – yuck!), and they all really want to help. In the end, of course the solution is teamwork, and the animals learn that, together, “We are all the BEST CHEF!”

To see more of my anthropomorphic animal art and some more appetizing food art as well, please check out my portfolio. Bon appetit!
