BEST CHILDREN'S ILLUSTRATION AWARD:

WINNER

CHILDREN'S BOOK ILLUSTRATION

Featured on the front cover of Anthology 2019: Adelaide Books Children's Literature and Illustration Award Competition, Erin was announced the winner of the 1st Annual Children's Literature & Illustration Awards in November 2019 by Adelaide Books LLC. 

By combining hand-drawn illustration in pen and ink with watercolor paintings and digital coloring, Erin produced this set of illustrations in her unique, intricate style. Each illustration aims to communicate a full narrative in just one image, thereby challenging the frequent expectation that graphic narrative can only tell a story through sequential, progressive images.

It was founded in July 2017 as an imprint of the Adelaide Literary Magazine, with the aim to facilitate publishing of novels, memoirs, and collections of short stories, poems, and essays by contributing authors of our magazine and other qualified writers.

We believe that in doing so, we best fulfill the mission outlined in Adelaide Magazine – “to promote writers we publish, helping both new and emerging, and established authors reaching a wider literary audience.”

Our motto is: We don't publish classics, we make classics.
