Storybook Research Art

Storybook Research Art is used in the research and development of children’s media. Prior to the storyboarding process, scripts are illustrated into a storybook.  The full-color storybook presentations are then read to various focus groups of children to test comprehension and obtain feedback.  Artwork by Dayna Gonzalez.
