FEATURED ILLUSTRATORS

Morgan Swofford

He received her BFA in Graphic Design and Illustration from the University of Kansas and has since had her hands in several different artistic cookie jars: graphic novels, greeting cards, children's books, and more. Her illustrations usually sway to the silly side of life and are largely suited for children (and children at heart). Children, animals, and monsters are just a few of Morgan's favorite things to illustrate. She has worked with many wonderful clients including The Union of Concerned Scientists, The Humane Society, and DCI Studios and is always on the lookout for a new fulfilling project.View Portfolio

Natalie Katz

I was born in Michigan in 1981.I have been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil. My mom would keep me quiet in church with crayons and paper and I would create all sorts of characters, down to every detail of eyelashes and accessories. I attended a university in Grand Rapids, Michigan, graduating with a BFA in Illustration. I moved to NYC in order to pursue my art career in one of the greatest art cities in the world. My adopted city has inspired me with its idiosyncrasies and quirks, and has helped me take my work to new levels. I have developed many styles that range from playful watercolors, to sketchy lined portraits, digital drawings, and abstract mixed media images. I enjoy exploring different media and incorporating new things into my work. My work is my passion. I love art; it is what I was born to do. View Portfolio

Nofio Pecoraro

Grew up in New Orleans, which is where I initially started to develop an interest in visual storytelling. My grandfather was an art director/designer for Jax Brewery, and a painter. I believe that spending time around him as a youth helped me develop a love for drawing and painting. Later on down the road I decided I wanted to make it my life. I then attended Portfolio Center in Atlanta, GA, where I was enrolled in the illustration program, which focused heavily on children's books. I have been working on a variety of freelance projects for major television networks including a series of designs for the show Eastbound and Down, ZhuZhu Pets and Pokemon, but I am eager to apply myself toward illustrating children's books. I enjoy using digital and traditional mediums and am passionate about compelling storytelling.View Portfolio
