Word of the Day

ILLUSTRATION

Nick Jr. approached me for a new series they were creating called Word of the Day.

Across the network, each month has it's own special theme. My job was to illustrate a group of vocabulary words which fell under the monthly theme. The illustrations were then animated and aired on Nick Jr. between regular programming.
