Colleen Madden Illustrates Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas”

Illustrator Colleen Madden recently finished work on a new children’s book, and all indications are that we will be seeing it everywhere very soon. The story, or words actually, are taken from the Mariah Carey song “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Colleen’s style had the right blend of painterly fun and sweet that Ms. Carey and the publisher, Random House Children’s Books, were looking for. It was a demanding project with a tight deadline, but Colleen pulled it off beautifully. If book sales are anything like the song sales, there is no doubt that the book will be a big hit!

Looks like it’s time for Christmas shopping! Copies will be available starting November 10th.

Colleen is represented by MB Artists. You can see more of Colleen’s work in her Folioplanet portfolio.
