Featured Illustrator for Late Fall/Early Winter

Our Featured Illustrator for late Fall/early Winter is our “People’s Choice” portfolio winner at our Golden Gate Conference, Isabella Kung.
Isabella is an author and illustrator with a feline obsession. Her illustrations have received accolades from institutions such as the Society of Illustrators, Spectrum Fantasy Art, 3×3, Creative Quarterly, and SCBWI. Outside the world of publishing, Isabella teaches illustration and watercolor classes at Storyteller Academy and Etchr Lab. Isabella currently resides in San Francisco with her husband and two adorable – you guessed it – cats! She is represented by Jennifer Laughran at Andrea Brown Literary.
Isabella is the author/illustrator of No Fuzzball! (Orchard Books, 2020) , about a fuzzy feline Queen that was described as an “expressive, endearing little chunk of well-meaning evil” by Kirkus Reviews. The recently released sequel No Snowball! (Orchard Books, 2022) introduces an adorable interloper to the Queendom! She is also the illustrator of the board books 123 Cats and ABC Cats by Lesléa Newman (Candlewick, 2021).
