Freelance illustrator/animator Laci Morgan's latest projects, helpful advice, and news!

..And the winner is...

Congratulations to miss Christine Cabal Culter, who serves as the inspiration for my next character! She'll be starring along with Willow when the book is released. Yay! I added glasses and a cutesy outfit to make her a little more kid-like (the character is about 12 years old), but I think she fits in great! Below is the cartoonized Christine, and the low res mockup of the front cover. (***Edit...sorry, my client has asked that I not post images of the full cover until it has been you'll have to wait for a little while longer to see it!)

Book covers galore

I've been excited to be working on a few book covers for a preteen fiction series. It's been a blast so far, as I get to create the characters, and there's quite a variety. I'm on cover #5 out of 8 so far. This particular cover revolves around a girl who runs her own talk show. I've already designed the girl (though I can't post the pic until the book is released for copyright reasons), and I just need to add another girl talking to her. I thought it might be fun to turn it into a little contest with my friends...last night on Twitter and Facebook, I asked for volunteers, and said I'd randomly pick one of them to "cartoonize" and put on the cover! Who will it be? Well, you'll just have to wait and see....I'll post the winner's illustration later today!

About Me

My photo
I'm an animation student at the Art Institute, as well as a budding freelance illustrator and graphic designer. I tend to specialize in Disney-like character designs and 2D animation, but I also have the ability to do professional graphics like ads, logos, and photo effects. This blog will follow current projects I'm working on, provide advice to fellow designers, and just celebrate anything in the world of art that happens to catch my fancy!
