ABOUT SHIRLEY WAISMAN

  • HELLO :)
    Nice to meet you.
    I am an illustrator and the Illustrator Coordinator of SCBWI Israel.
    I earned a BA in visual communication and worked as a TV game designer.
    I was awarded a Research Scholarship in Japan for two years, where I discovered the wonderful world of Illustrating children’s books. 
    Nowadays, between illustrating books,  I am finishing my MA in Art and Education and being the Illustrator Coordinator of SCBWI ISRAEL.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I love what I do – it’s the best career I could ask for, and when I see kids reading my books, smiling, it’s the biggest reward ever.

     

    I usually draw with pencils and color on the computer, but I love to try new techniques, including ink, pastels, or even markers…


    I always think about the most interesting way to describe the scene with humor – if I laugh and have fun while illustrating, I believe it passes on to viewers.


    I also love to add small details or animals, like a mouse or a cat that the kids will attach to, and find new things every time…
