"She Spoke" is a children picture book featuring 14 incredible women who changed the world with their voices. This book is written by Kathy Macmillan & Manuela Bernadi, illustrated by me and published by Familius. Not only that this is full color printed in hard cover, but another thing which make this book special is the button feature, where we can hear the voices of the women at a press of a button. Often times we know how the women looked like, but rarely know how they sounded like. So I think this feature is really special for a children book.
For each figure, I draw a portrait of them & also one spot illustration that represents them the most.
Feel free to scroll down, and I really hope you like it!
