Valerie Lesiak produces illustrations for freelance clients and for herself, working under her moniker Picture Book Studio. The artist’s works are colorful and kid-friendly, often featuring animals and simple text elements as subjects.

I enjoy the welcoming, whimsical tone that Valerie achieves through her digital artworks. These illustrations are built upon a simplified, cartoonish style – the way the artist layers of planes of color often creates the appearance of cut, collaged paper, giving each work a charming, hand-done aesthetic. In Valerie’s recent series Alphabet Soup, the artist’s knack for children’s book illustrations really shines.

Each letter of the English alphabet is given its own individual artwork, with the letters themselves incorporated into scenarios as figures and objects. The letter A, for example, becomes a rainbow, supporting an ark of animals. In another work, it turns into the legs and body of a dog.
