My First Book Illustrations

A few months ago, I received an email from a charitable organization in Canada:


"Hello Deanna,

Please allow me a moment of your time to introduce myself to you. I obtained your email from your Facebook page. I was very impressed with the illustration you did re ‘HUMBOLDT”. Its a tragedy most difficult to comprehend. First, I am a volunteer president of a charity called The Masters Foundation which has been involved in Ukraine for

Over 34 years. Please visit our website www.mastersfoundation.org. We are also providing much aid in the form of a highly nutritional dehydrated soup mix provided the Gleaners, another volunteer organization based in B.C., Alberta and Ontario. Each container gives 1.5 million portions of soup. Because of the on going war in Eastern Ukraine, the needs are overwhelming with children being affected the most. Masters is also involved in ministering to men and women in Ukraine’s prisons with team visitation and distribution of literature. In my trip to Ukraine last month I met with the officials from the Ministry of Justice. Please look at Facebook Masters and my FB for information of that meeting. As a result of that meeting we have been invited to produce a manual with DVDs that will enable a volunteer to go into the prisons and set up classes, and have inmates participate in this life altering course. It was interesting that the Justice Ministry officials requested if their psychologists could take the program so they would be able to assist inmates deal with issues in their lives.

My purpose in writing you is to see if you would be interested in assisting us with this project. If you are and would like more information and samples of work required to be done, I would be please to chat with you."


After a few emails back and forth, I was absolutely willing and able to donate my time and talent to redraw the illustrations for the workbooks that this wonderful organization is utilizing in their work. I am flattered and honored to be a part of this project. If you would like to take a look at all the drawings, feel free to visit: https://www.overcomers-project.deannabrownart.com/
