ABOUT LINDSAY RUST

  • My current projects revolve around writing and illustrating storybooks for children. I’m working on several colorful concepts that I hope to launch within the next year, including “Drumming Numbers with Boom Ba Bee”, “Up in the Mountains, Down in the Valleys”, “Ghostly Grocery”, and “The Sound of the Drum”. Many of the illustrations in my SCBWI portfolio are the first-draft spreads for these books.

    Picasso said “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up”. There’s a fearlessness in the expression of children that’s charming, genuine, and profound. As an aspiring PB author/illustrator, I aim to create books that move children and their caregivers to feel joy and inspiration, and learn something new about the world that we all share. Rhythm, nature, and adventure are common themes throughout my work.
