The Green Ribbon is a children's book written by Alvin Schwartz in a collection of stories known as “In A Dark Dark Room and Other Scary Stories”. In redesigning and illustrating this book I wanted to maintain this creepy feeling from the original book, while portraying the story in a more sophisticated and romantic way. Through the detailed illustrations I aimed to create scenes that were beautiful yet dark to reflect the mood of the story.

For this project I was awarded Best Children's Book of Tyler School of Art's Class of 2017 and was one of ten books selected for Random House Children's Books Student Showcase for Illustrated Books.
