Whooo what a fun project this was! I illustrated the extremely cute poem, Autumn Fairies by Sarah Meade and am so happy with how it came out. More info below but first, the final art!
I'd love to give a few shout outs to the author of this lovely poem, Sarah Meade, as well as Babybug magazine where it was first featured in October 2022. Also, Michelle Hazelwood Hyde, who has perhaps the best middle name ever, created the original illustration which first caught my eye.
