Maya Tatsukawa
illustrator & book designer & crafter
Hello, I'm Maya!
And yes, I am petite (which means small in french) but bigger than a pencil.

My life and work is a never-ending happy project, where I strive to add a small piece of happiness to a person's day with a smile or laugh in the picture books I illustrate and sometimes write. I also design children's books created by brilliant authors and illustrators during the day for Walker Books US. 

When I'm not designing, illustrating, or thinking about children's books, you can find me baking desserts, eating ice cream, or searching for the perfect scone just outside of Boston.

For book design inquiries (or to say hello!),

For book illustration inquiries,
please contact my lovely agent, Wendi Gu, at wgu(at)sjga.com
