I really love elephants.

If you are an illustrator with an elephant picture book, hit me up. I’d love an elephant book of an elephant living its life in wild. Not living it up in the big city Babar-style. (Also less colonialism) #mswl

Right now I have a very robust list of text-only picture book clients, so I'm focusing on finding author/illustrators in the picture book space for now. I would love to find YOUR version of something like THEY ALL SAW A CAT. #mswl

I am still very much on the hunt from MG and YA non-fiction! I am always on the hunt for great queer books of all ages and I would love to add some more queer illustrators to my list! #MSWL

Something I've been doing this week is look for trans, nonbinary, and genderqueer illustrators. So many of the books I represent are written by and tell the stories of those identities and it would be great to have the covers illustrated by queer artists. Hit me up! #MSWL
