Tamia of the Forest illustrator Rachel Ball has completed all of the sketches for KWiL’s first children’s chapter book, written by Jim Nies and releasing Fall 2018. Now she is going over each illustration in ink. Here’s a photo of Rachel adding ink to the illustration we call “Tamia Nibbling Cone,” as well as the original sketch and three additional pencil sketches from the book. Thanks for sharing, Rachel!
