Hello, my name is Germán Blanco and I've worked as a graphic designer for over 10 years. I had the opportunity to illustrate my first children's book over 5 years ago, and since then I've also been pursuing a true passion: illustration. Now I work as an art director, designer, and/or illustrator on picture books, chapter books, graphic novels, drawing books, gift books, and more! I’ve designed covers, illustrated interior pages, designed interior pages including typesetting, and prepared files for print, managing the print production process. I've been fortunate to work with a range of authors, including a Grammy award-winning band, and have even won a few awards myself for my work (including Parents Magazine book of the year for my first illustrated picture book, When Pencil Met Eraser).
