Eleanor: Design and Illustration
Modern design and illustration by Eleanor Grosch


St. Catherine's Alumnae Magazine Cover

About a week after Hazel was born I got a magazine cover illustration job for St. Kate's Magazine. This was surprisingly welcome since I was doing so many different things - changing diapers, feeding a baby, waking up at all hours, washing bottles, etc. - so it was great to work on an illustration.  It made me feel a bit normal!  So, while Hazel slept all bundled next to me I worked on this cover illustration in the bed. It came out nicely, I think, but it's pretty different from my other work.  Under the cover image you'll see some other versions that I did as sketches for this.  Maybe I was a little out of my mind at the time :)
