Abby's Art World
by Abby Davidson
(West Bloomfield, MI)
I graduated from Wayne State University with a Bachelors in Fine Arts, with a drawing concentration.
I am an illustrator, printmaker, and painter. I have always had a passion for old-fashioned and whimsical children's illustrated books.
I have extensive experience in life drawing, illustrating animals, and using a range of techniques. It is important to me that I always produce quality work. The effort and time it takes to create beautiful illustrations is always worth it.
Style: I create both realistic and cartoon-like illustrations. My work tends to focus on line-work details and bold color, but I can always adapt the illustrations depending on the mood or theme of the project.
Mediums: I primarily use watercolor, color pencil, pastel, printmaking ink, pen and ink, acrylic, and more. My areas of specialty include block printing, color pencil illustrating, and pointillism with pen and ink.
Subject Matter: I love illustrating animals, both realistic and cartoon-style. I also illustrate the human figure. If you have a photo source of the subject you want the art to resemble, that will help me create exactly what you have in mind.
Process/Pricing: After reading your manuscript, I will create a sample layout, color or black and white. The outline proof is free-of-charge. If there are any changes you would like to make, this is when I create alternate proofs, also free-of-charge. Once it has been approved, we can discuss the details, such as number of pages, size preference, medium(s) preference, and a deadline. Once I have this information, I can give you an estimate. If you would like only one spot illustration for a book cover or a gift, it will be the same process.
Collaborating: If you would like to see more samples from my portfolio or ask any questions, please feel free to contact me at Abigail Davidson Art.
I look forward to working on any inspiring project!
