Illustrating Children’s Books Online Art Diploma Course – Celia Carlile

Today’s college news post is a very exciting one. Celia is an award winning Artist and Illustrator who studied our Illustrating Children’s Books Online Art Diploma Course. The course tutor is Maggy Robert and Celia had access to Maggy’s help online throughout the entire course.  We have recently been given some beautiful photos of Celia along with her Diploma, her college course folder and her published books. Celia has had the photos taken especially for us to use on our website and our college news blog. We would officially like to thank Celia for taking the time in doing this for us!

Whilst Celia was studying online with us at the London Art College on the Illustrating Children’s Books Online Art Diploma Course, she entered ‘The Agnes Sloane Illustrator’s Competition’.  As a result Celia’s artwork was highly praised and she was the runner up for the competition. This led Celia to the exciting opportunity in being asked to illustrate for writer Wendy Hesketh’s book – ‘The Slimy Slug’. Wendy and Celia’s book can be purchased from Amazon and it has wonderful 5* reviews, one of which you can read below….

“A wonderfully illustrated book about a little boy and a very slimy slug! The slug is found in the school play yard and after a ride around the grounds makes it inside. He starts to explore, but is found in time to take a trip in the car. I won’t spoil the rest of the fun. A cute book that kids will enjoy.”

Consequently Celia went on to write and illustrate ‘The Christmas Song’, ‘The Best Holiday Ever’ and ‘The Best Christmas Ever’ collaborating with her writer husband Orsion Carlile.

Most noteworthy is Celia’s new book ‘Granny and the Monster’, which has just been released and is out now to purchase on Celia’s website. You can also listen to a wonderful song about the book written and sung by Orsion Carlisle. It is absolutely fabulous and it will definitely make you smile. Why not take a stroll around  Celia’s Website.

We would like to congratulate Celia on her incredible successes and superb website. We are looking forward to seeing more of Celia’s books in the coming months and years.
