Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
Instead of buying them, have your readers consider making Valentine’s Day cards with the help of this book. Using the simple, step-by-step instructions, potential artists can learn to draw the basic symbols of Valentine’s Day like hearts, flowers, and balloons as well as more complicated characters like teddy bears and Cupid. The instructions guide readers through several steps for each drawing, allowing them to sketch, then erase and embellish as needed. Even though this is a Valentine’s Day drawing book, some of the projects can be adapted for other holidays or occasions. The cat, for example, can quickly be made for Halloween decorations and the goldfish drawing could be adapted for comic strips. The drawings may look daunting at first, but the clear instructions will help any artist, with just a little patience and practice, make lovely cards for Valentine’s Day. Should be purchased anywhere that drawing books are in high demand. Reviewer: Tiffany Torbeck; Ages 7 to 11.

Meet the Author

Jennifer Besel has the best job in the world—writing and editing books for kids! Her book The Captivating, Creative, Unusual History of Comic Books was a 2011 notable book from the National Council for the Social Studies, the Children's Book Council, and the TriState Young Adult Review Committee. It was also a 2010 VOYA honor book. Jen reads, writes, and plays in Mankato, Minnesota, with her husband and two sons.

Lucy Makuc lives, works, and plays in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has always loved drawing as a means of expression and communication. She studied at the National College of Art and under several teachers. When she’s not illustrating, she enjoys listening to music, reading comics, and playing with her cats.

Those not familiar with Wilkinson Studios and the services we perform are in for a very pleasant surprise. We are unlike any artist's representatives you've ever encountered!
We are proud to offer the collective talents of our professional illustrators, both nationally and internationally. But what sets us apart from the other rep firms is that we also offer art management services for large volume blackline and color illustration programs.
In combination with our art management services, our strength is our people. Managers and support staff consisting of designers, marketing and production professionals, and illustrators perform the services provided by Wilkinson Studios. Beyond that we are people who have a personal interest in your complete satisfaction, regardless how large or small the project might be.
Finally, Christine Wilkinson, president and founder of Wilkinson Studios, brings nearly twenty years of experience representing illustrators to the publishing industry and as a result a broad understanding of the needs specific to publishers, design and development houses. She prides herself in being intimately involved in the everyday operations of the firm that bears her name.
We, the staff and illustrators, at Wilkinson Studios, look forward to working with you!
Christine Wilkinson | President & Founder
Lisa O'Hara | Vice President
