Illustrating a series of 20+ characters for a children's book



"Ciao, Maestro!" is a children's book written by Roberto Morgese and published by Piemme Edizioni. The book is about the teacher Roberto and his class. Through everyday stories, we get to know the students, each with unique quirks and personalities.


I had so much fun illustrating this series of 20+ characters, one kid for each chapter, and imagining the interaction between classmates in the school setting!

In the images above you can see the first sketches and color test for the book cover. The children's age here wasn't quite right, so in the final version of the cover (that you can see below) we made them "grow up" a bit :)
