"Not only do Brianne's drawings have great style and flair, they also use classic principles...the whole shebang of good drawing skills, and to top it off, a lot of individuality and fun!" John Kricfalusi, creator of Ren & Stimpy
"Brianne's world of super-cute characters and beyond beautiful landscapes sends me on a visual sugar high with every page I turn...." - Sam Register EVP Warner Bros Animation
The full-bleed illustrations in a combination of colored pencil and colored markers use subtle matte-white sparkles, dramatically-staged scenes in animation style, and an effective use of contrast to show a dramatic story unfolding. The climax of the story is well-represented visually with an increasing cacophony of detailed flowers ” Bayviews, Association of Children's Librarians of Northern California
Very excited to see another great book release from Immedium! Billie the Unicorn is a story about a sweet, but unfulfilled little unicorn named Billie, searching for her place and purpose in the world. After making a few bad choices, Billie learns to be true to herself and those that love her.
