I just discovered this delightful illustrator Heather Castles whose colorful illustrations are whimsical with a playful blend of humor and simplicity…just right for picture books.

Heather is a young Canadian illustrator and designer based in Adelaide, Australia. She studied at the Alberta College of Art & Design, as well as completed Capilano College’s Graphic Design & Illustration Program from 1999 – 2002. She illustrates  and designs children’s books and greeting cards.

Her blogsite offers a lot of information that could be helpful to an aspiring or working illustrator. She offers tips about greeting card design and a methodical check list for marketing and promoting yourself. You may also want to check out her book Spotty& Eddie Visit Percé.
