Zachariah Ohora

by Alexis on March 8, 2013

When I was reading the galleys for the Winter issue, the article “Coasting Through Life’s Ups & Downs” made me a little sentimental. Like the author,¬†Pamela Ribon, I was expecting my first daughter, and reading about the traditions passed down from mother to daughter in her family made me look forward to establishing traditions of my own. I don’t want to give away too much about the story, but it’s a sweet balance of family and chaotic summer fun.

When we were looking for an illustrator for the piece, Zachariah Ohora seemed like a natural choice to capture the light-heartedness and sentimentality. Ohoroa is perhaps best known for his children’s book Stop Snoring Bernard (which I intend to add to my library) but also does great editorial work, album covers, and posters (he has a few more books due out later this year). We love how the final illustrations he created for us turned out. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, be sure to flip to page 69 in Issue No. 10.
