ABOUT SHIRLEY WAISMAN
Hello, I am the Illustrator Coordinator of SCBWI Israel. Nice to meet you :)
I have 20 years of illustration experience for Children’s books along with a B.A. in visual communication from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. Following my degree, I was awarded a research scholarship that allowed me to research children’s book illustrations in Japan for two years.
I have recently completed a Master’s degree in Art and Education.
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 the kids and their parents.
