Casey Girard studied Illustration and Graphic Design at RIT in upstate NY. Her illustration has been ongoing throughout the years in her own projects, pieces that fit with her marketing jobs, and attendance at SCBWI conferences. Now as a freelancer she is putting more emphasis on her illustrating through time and marketing.

She works in colored pencil, using the process of burnishing to create soft surfaces, and watercolor, to keep her pieces loose. She illustrated this amazing animals alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet was illustrated by an animal to represent it. They are absolutely amazing.
