My new design for my illustration and web design website.
November is always a busy month for me. NanoWriMo starts, I begin work on my Tomie dePaola illustrator award submission and, of course, I'm submitting promotional postcards to publishers. This year I've got another source of buzz too. I've redesigned my cyber reality. A Journey Illustrated has a new look and so does my general illustration and web design blog. This is because I've revamped my website to better reflect my business as a whole. I'm realizing that many people don't know that, along with being an illustrator for the last 27 years, I've also been a web designer for 10 years. I specialize in empowering small business owners with the knowledge to manage their cyberselves and stand out in a sea of cookie cutter solutions and cloned websites. Over the last 4 years, most of my time has gone into studying children's illustration, but now that my children's illustration portfolio is circulating in the publishing world, it's time to take new web design clients again. I thought it would be a good idea to let people know, so I'm spreading the word.

So, have a look at my new website. It's a responsive design which means it adapts to whatever size screen you're viewing it on. (Responsive also means you can play with it, so when you get there, check out what happens when you grab the bottom right corner of your browser window and drag it to the left.) Have fun and if you feel inclined...I hope you'll help me spread the word!


  1. Congrats Kristen! It looks great. That resizing thing is a trip. I think the pricing info is perfect. Just enough info to give people an idea, but you're also very clear that it depends on the specific needs and job.

  2. Thanks Angelia! Yeah - I'm really mesmerized by the resizing thing. :) I appreciate the pricing info feedback. There's a fine line between being clear and supplying too much info.
