Young Reader Chapter Book Illustrations

Hope's Melody
By Jeanna Kunce, Art by Craig Kunce

This is the third collaboration by Jeanna and myself. This wonderful story follows 9-year-old Abigail as she embarks on an important journey, with her new animal friends, to save the waning creative energy that keeps our civilization vibrant and full of hope.

Since this chapter book is for 6–10-year-old readers, I chose an illustration style in-between my looser children’s picture book style and the tighter, detailed crosshatching of the Darien series. The cover is pen-and-ink and watercolor. The inside illustrations are pen-and-ink with grayscale watercolor washes.
