Tidal Zones textbook illustration

Tidal zones textbook illustration by Jeni Paltiel

In this illustration for a middle-school ecology textbook, I show the creatures that inhabit different parts of the ocean near shore. In textbook illustrations I’m always working to stay close to the spec provided, while also using good design and interesting illustrations – there’s no reason textbooks have to feel dated or ugly just because they’re presenting useful and accurate information. Kids deserve good design, too!
