I’m Jillian (Ailsa) Thalman - a Toronto-based, self-taught illustrator. I have a deep love for myth, children’s books and folk-art, which influences a lot of what I do. I specialize in playful children’s illustration and editorial pieces. I have also participated in a number of live art-making competitions and private events.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Montblanc, the Globe and Mail, the CBC, Prostate Cancer Canada and the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

I’m available for all types of work, including:

·       Children’s and young adult’s book illustrations

·       Editorial pieces for magazines and online publications

·       Promotional and marketing materials

·       Stationary

·       Live art-making events

·       Individual commissions

If you’re interested in working with me, I would love to hear from you! You can reach me at jillianailsa@gmail.com - or connect with me through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram

Keep things silly. ⭐
