Title: Landing a Picture Book Deal (and What Happens After?)

with 2021 debut illustrator Yuko Jones


2021 debut illustrator Yuko Jones has a few tricks up her sleeve for landing a picture book illustration job. But once you land that deal, what can you expect throughout the process of collaborating with a publisher? Yuko will take us through how her debut offer came to her, as well as through the pertinent aspects of her illustration process, industry expectations, deadlines, and more!


Yuko Jones was born and raised in Japan, and spent much of her childhood drawing and painting. After completing her degrees in English, Psychology, and Human Development, she embarked on her career in early childhood developmental research. While working with children, she realized how picture books can play a crucial role in their development, and she wanted to become part of the positive impact. Yuko believes everyone has special abilities to make this world a better place, and she hopes her work will inspire children to embrace their unique gifts. Niki Nakayama: A Chef’s Tale in 13 Bites (FSG 2021) is her debut illustrated picture book.
