Just the Tates

  • Some covers I illustrated for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. These are for re-releases of Just the Tates!, a series of books by Lois Lowry.
  • First up was designing the main character, Caroline.
  • These were initial sketches for the cover of the first book. Caroline lives in New York City, spending a lot of time at the Natural History Museum.
  • This was the chosen select.
  • The line art for the cover.
  • The final cover illustration.
  • Onto sketches for the second book, with Caroline and her brother babysitting and coaching a baseball team.
  • The line art for the cover, complete with overly worried expressions on our heroes.
  • Final illustration for the Switcharound.
  • Select for the last cover, Your Move JP!, featuring a costume party and a chess tournament in the climax.
  • And the final illustration.
  • Thanks for looking!
