Finding the right illustrator for your children's book is an important step in the publishing process. You need to ensure that the illustrator's artistic style is a good fit for your story and that you can maintain a productive and collaborative working relationship. When co-authors Felicia Low-Jimenez and Adan Jimenez (A.J. Low) were given the opportunity to work on a children's book series for Singaporean publisher Epigram Books, they already had a talented artist in mind to illustrate their work and they lobbied for him. This was Eisner nominated comic artist Andrew Tan. Tan submitted samples of his work to Epigram and was chosen to illustrate their award-winning Sherlock Sam middle-grade series. Because of an existing friendship, the co-authors knew Tan's style would be a good fit and that he would be easy to work with. The pair have been impressed with Tan's attention to detail and his commitment to produce the best work possible.
