I wrote and illustrated Tracy’s Quest as a semester-long project for an advanced illustration class. Tracy is a lonely rabbit who sets out on a quest to find something she enjoys and is passionate about! After trying a lot of different things (everything from playing soccer to swimming to climbing trees), she finally discovers that she loves to sing. My design process started with story writing and development and then progressed to gathering style inspiration and researching illustrators. Next, I started sketching and ultimately created storyboards for each spread. After many rounds of revisions, changes in style and storyline, and much experimentation, Tracy’s Quest (in its current form) came to life! The sketches below show some of my early character development for Tracy, the main character. To purchase a copy of Tracy’s Quest, please contact me.
