Children love stories and pictures. Artwork has always been important in children’s books, whether they are hand-painted illustrations of Hercules Labors on papyrus from Bryzantine Egypt or woodcuts in Orbis Pictus or etchings by George Cruikshank in Oliver Twist. Our world and technology has changed in gigantic leaps and bounds, but the essence of the children’s world is still the same, i.e colors and giants, pygmies, princesses and princes, witches flying on brooms, magical fairies, talking animals…all at the same time!
All our Children book illustration projects are created completely in-house by Ana Patankar

Ana and Mukul, I honestly could not have completed this with anyone else. Not only were you both incredible on a professional level, but I just felt our synergy was perfect. Mukul, thank you for helping me with every last detail, answering all of my questions (no matter how late I asked them!!) and being so supportive. Ana, you captured the essence of my family with your illustrations. Some things I provided the background, but on others it seemed like you were tapped into our energy. I am forever grateful.
If you are like me, your project is more than just work. It is a labor of love that is not to be left in the hands of anyone. I am here to confess to you that Ana's hands are more than capable. She is a master craftsman and a professional. On several concepts where I was helplessly stuck, she came to the rescue with ideas that were so magnificent that I was just awestruck. She understand's that there will be last minute hiccups and makes herself available to fix those small ankle bitters that plague a lot of projects at the end. Ana is the most professional artist that I have ever worked with. And I have worked with at least 8.
Ana is AMAZING! She is so patient, creative, and really fun to work with! This was my first book and I had no idea it would turn out so well. Everyone compliments the drawings. I HIGHLY recommend Ana for whatever project you have. Just look at her portfolio, she does everything!
