Book Illustrations from Children’s Book on Asthma

Dr. Donna Matlach’s children’s book titled, Phoebe the Pug Asks, “Is My Asthma Changing” is soon to be published.


I had a lot of fun creating some 20+ illustrations for Dr. Matlach’s first educational book.


Because Donna has severe asthma, she knows first-hand the challenges and barriers that people with asthma face. She hopes this book encourages a meaningful conversation between children, parents, patients, and providers.

Here are some of my illustrations.

I sketched first, scanned my sketches and colored and created on Photoshop Elements.
