Wonky Witches

I'm very excited to announce that for the past week or so I have been working with Becky Titelman, creator of the Wonky Witch series, on some new projects that will be released later this fall. I've been having a fantastic time reading the series, learning all about the world of the main character, Maude, and her best friend Adair. I just finished book one and eagerly started reading Book Two!

This collaboration has been an interesting one because the original first three books of the series were illustrated by Cody Potter. Becky is currently re-releasing books one through three with a new publisher, but was unable to get in contact with her previous illustrator. She and I met this past December at a local arts festival and have worked on a few little projects here and there since then. So thankfully, we already had a good working relationship and she liked my artwork enough to call upon me for this fantastic opportunity!

I've had so much fun coming up with my own designs based on Mr. Potter's lovely original drawings. Here are a early first looks at my version of Maude:

And Adair:

I've also been busily working on an image for the cover of Book Four! But there is still a lot of work to be done over the summer. To keep up with updates, check out all the various social media outlets with Wonky Witch info!
