Illustrator Highlights – Melissa Wright

Illustrator Highlights – Melissa Wright

by Jennifer Silverwood, October 12, 2018

This week, on Illustrator Highlights, we are proud to feature the works of author & illustrator Melissa Wright. Melissa is the author of seven YA and Fantasy novels and countless to-do lists. She works primarily in watercolor and ink but has been known to experiment with other mediums. Check out her works in progress in both writing and illustration below.




“I’ve always worked light and built up detail, so watercolor works well for me. I like to do a pencil sketch and then ink in the design, followed by layers of color and detail.

-Melissa Wright




“I’m always striving to do better work, to learn new mediums, and to get more done. It seems my goals are constantly shifting as I go, but I hope my future holds a career in both illustration and writing and it would be lovely if the two could be done simultaneously.”

– Melissa Wright

    So I love all of these, but can't get over the girl with octopus hair! Need more mermaid-ish art, Melissa Wright!
