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

New Baby Animal Illustrations for Chirp Magazine

22 Jul

ispot_Chirp_chicken_thumbEarlier this spring, I was asked by Chirp Magazine to create some cute illustrations for a spread in their “Baby Animals” issue. This was fun! There are two puzzles – one asks kids to put the life stages of frogs, butterflies and dogs in order, and one has them count the eggs in the nests of various birds. I think they turned out great!

Chirp’s colourful issues contain tons of innovative stories, puzzles and activities for 3- to 6-year-olds. As I grew up with Owl Magazine (Chirp’s older sister), it was very cool to see my illustrations in this magazine!

Winter Party Illustration for Humpty Dumpty Magazine

13 Jan

Last fall, I scored a really fun assignment for Humpty Dumpty magazine – a full spread illustrating a poem about a wintry night in a big city park – where a big birthday bash is set to begin. Keeping in mind one of my favourite places in the whole world – Central Park – I had a blast doing this – playing around with the effects of streetlights making halos of light on the snow and adding the gently falling flakes. Also hiding all the objects in plain site… trying to figure what would be just challenging enough for a 5-7 year old. My 4-year-old, who’s EXTREMELY advanced (of course she is) got about half right – I figured that would work out okay. Anyhoo, it was fun to get the printed copy in the mail the other day. Have a look! Can YOU find all the hidden party paraphernalia? Good for you!humpty-print2 humpty-print1 LW_HumptyDumpty_Winter-Party_final_REV1_wtype
