Santa's Scout Retail Box Front and Back Design.

After a lengthy search for a talented illustrator to assist me in the development of my character, book and activity kit, SANTA’S SCOUT, I was so fortunate to meet Denis Proulx of Shangri-La Studio. As a working mother, wife and daughter as well as a first time author, it was important for me to find an illustrator who would be flexible, responsive and timely.   And, most importantly to find someone who could truly identify with my children’s story and create drawings that would bring my character to life.  Denis exceeded my expectations in all of these categories.  From our initial discussion, and throughout the entire creation process, Denis maintained patience and professionalism as he helped to guide my project to completion.  I will never forget the moment that I received my first character drawing from Denis.  I couldn’t believe how perfectly he matched the characteristics, expressions and animation of my character to my story. 

Denis, thank you for going above and beyond and sharing your gifts and talent to help folks bring their stories to life! 

Thank you,

Michelle Budd
