My Picture Books
T. C. Bartlett is a member of SCBWI
(Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators)

Below are some of my picture book dust jackets  - works in progress. 
All of these picture books are available for review. None of which are set in stone. I am willing to revise, redesign and work with you in every possible way to make the best picture book possible. Together we can make something fun and special for children.

If you are a publisher of children's books, an editor, or an art director, I can easily e-mail you a PDF dummy or send you a paper dummy via USPS.
Please feel free to contact me at any time for more information.

My goal is to make the best picture book possible. I am willing to make changes an editor and art director feel are necessary. Frist and foremost, this is a business and collaboration is the key to making a picture book that will touch the heart of children, and last a lifetime.

All the illustrations for each of my books are made by hand, either on vellum,  tracing paper, drawing paper, or watercolor paper. Once the final art is finished, I digitally scan it into the computer where I do my final composite work and book design.
