Upon graduating from MIAD, Patrick McRae landed a job with Ideals Publishing. Hired as an Art Director, he was given the opportunity to illustrate for Ideals Magazine as well as Ideals Children's Books. His first book was: "Here Comes Peter Cottontail". In total, he has illustrated 10 children's books. Sadly, most of the books are out of print and the artwork is not in his possession. What you see here is a small sampling of over 500 illustrations.
