"No Fear For Freedom: The Story of the Friendship 9" written by Kimberly P. Johnson and illustrated by yours truly, Vanessa J. Thompson!!!
Here it is! In all of its glory, sitting on top of my dining table ^-^. I cried happy tears when I first opened the box and saw what was inside!! This was my second project outside of school, (the first was some designy things for the Carolina’s Southern Cuisine restaurant), but my FIRST professional illustration job.
It is so rewarding to hold something that I’ve worked so hard on and can now officially say that I am a published children’s book illustrator!! This is just the start!
