LISEL ASHLOCK ILLUSTRATES “DO UNTO ANIMALS: A FRIENDLY GUIDE TO HOW ANIMALS LIVE, AND HOW WE CAN MAKE THEIR LIVES BETTER”

by Ariadna Zierold

Illustrator and designer Lisel Ashlock had the very unique opportunity working with Tracey Stewart, Rachel Filler and the team at Artisan Books conceptualizing, designing, and building this book from the ground up.

Working extremely close with the team at Artisan and author Tracey Stewart, this was truly a labor of love and an absolute dream for an illustrator.

“The more we know about the animals in our world and the better we care for them, the better our lives will be. Former veterinary technician and animal advocate Tracey Stewart understands this better than most—and she’s on a mission to change how we interact with animals. Through hundreds of charming illustrations, a few homemade projects, and her humorous, knowledgeable voice, Stewart provides insight into the secret lives of animals and the kindest ways to live with and alongside them.” Lisel Ashlock

Painting on birch panel, drawing with pencil and watercolor or working digitally, each of Lisel’s projects is executed with a sensitivity and celebration of the natural world. When she’s not busy on an illustration project, Lisel can be found designing, photographing, styling, hand-crafting and creative directing for Moomah the Magazine.

More details of the book to come as the release date of October 6th, 2015 gets closer.
