I am a graduate of Pratt Institute, majoring in Communications Design with an emphasis in Illustration. Projects assigned in my classes required me to design page layouts, create book mock-ups and plan advertising materials. Photoshop and InDesign were integral tools consistently used for the completion of these assignments and Microsoft Office was utilized both in my design and academic classes. My curriculum required I develop strong organizational skills for the completion of various projects in a fast, deadline driven environment.

My goal is to build a career in children's book publishing as an illustrator. In preparing for this, I have furthered my education by participating in a Children’s Book Boot Camp, joined the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators, and subscribed to Publisher’s Lunch. Furthermore, my current employment was undertaken to learn more about the intended audience. Read Less

Album, Fall 2015
To celebrate her 8th anniversary, a client requested I design a photo album of her and her boyfriend's first vacation together. She wished it to be made even more special with the addition of my illustrations. Not only did I add illustrations, but I have added lines from their emails to create a story with their own words.

Where the Balloons Go, 2014-2015
Children's Book, LifeFilm Entertainment
After successfully finishing their commission to illustrate an opening sequence for "MeiLynn's World", LifeFilm Entertainment commissioned me to illustrate a children's book called "Where the Balloons Go," written by Peilin Chou, to help pitch a new idea for a movie. The book was later reviewed by Kirkus and they stated, "Bartolanzo's depictions of Cooper are enchanting: in one conversation with Newton, Cooper is sitting cross-legged in the air, capturing the floating boy's energy. The lost balloons and the arc of the rainbow are brilliantly portrayed in full color."
