Rachelle Meyer was born in the state of Texas...
“I approached Rachelle last year with a handful of illustration and design tasks. The brief had a two-fold nature… the technical specifications were laid out quite firmly, and these were met with absolute precision. Design-wise, a few thoughts were passed on as guidance. This is where Rachelle really shines. She has taken this latter part, met expectations, and taken it further to become an enormously artistic and well-rounded deliverable. Her artistic interpretation added astounding value to the product. A rare cross between amazing illustration capability and technical delivery. Wow.

In reality his work demonstrates a profound control of the paintbrush and careful understanding of the mediums he works with."

“I approached Mike Nash to produce the cover art for my novel, having already considered a number of other artists. Mike’s fantasy paintings stood out on account of his innovative compositions and consummate ability to generate atmosphere and realism through combinations of detail, colour and lighting. Throughout the project, Mike kept in close contact and regularly updated me on his progress. He was meticulous in his research and studied relevant scenes from the book in order to elicit characterisation and style. The preliminary sketches were astounding, far exceeding my expectations. At each stage Mike sought my feedback before proceeding to the next level of detail. His designs for the protagonist and the creature he is fighting on the cover were entirely faithful to my descriptions and have significantly improved upon my own ability to visualise the characters. The work has a phenomenal amount of subtle detail, suggesting not only the wider story and enticing the viewer to open the book to find out what happens, but also hinting at some of the underlying themes in the novel. I have been impressed throughout by Mike’s professionalism, excellent communication and, perhaps most importantly, his ability to enter into the work, take creative ownership, and to produce something that is both compelling and extraordinary.”
Derek Prior, author of ‘The Resurrection of Deacon Shader’ (Homunculus Books 2009)
“Filmmaking is not solely a visual medium; it’s about communicating a message in a powerful and evocative fashion, with flair and finesse. So when it came time to create concept art for my film project, it was critical to work closely with an artist who not only was skilled at his or her trade, but one who understood the importance of translating the nuance of written words into a compelling, iconic image. Mike Nash proved his talent ten fold with the work he delivered. The process was always professional, constructive and illuminating. Mike always incorporated the feedback I offered and, moreover, surprised me with many artful choices that helped elevate the end results to a level I hadn’t imagined possible. He turned the typical client-vendor relationship into a synergistic creative team. It’s this collaborative spirit that made working with Mike wholly satisfying. I’m looking forward to the next round, Mr. Nash. Kudos!

“In support of Brian Garabrant’s freelance endeavors, we just wanted to take a few moments to express our appreciation for his talent and his consummate professionalism.
We commissioned Brian to work on a dark fantasy book project, namely a book cover and accompanying character sketches… safe to say, he far exceeded our expectations. From initial sketch to finished product, Brian kept us in the loop the entire way through and was willing and able to revise as needed. The commission we paid Brian was perhaps one of the best investments we’ve made in relations to our creative endeavors .

“After interviewing three potential artists, I selected Cheryl for my children's book project. What a great choice she has proven to be!
Her enthusiasm was so genuine and her communication was so encouraging during the project that I felt as if I was working with a longtime friend. Her art was witty, whimsical, and mysterious - just perfect for the theme of my children's story. She was focused and timely and a complete joy to work with. Her understanding of my rather vague concepts was so intuitive and insightful that I believe she has made for an even more compelling finished work.

“The News-Sentinel has been entertaining and informing readers in both print and online through the outstanding artwork of Ken Dutton since 1998. He has been willing and able to take on projects large and small, even under the pressure of newspaper deadlines, often on short notice, and give us top quality work every time. He has been pleasant to work with, more than reasonable in price and always on time. And there has never been any challenge he couldn't meet.

“‘Marcus has been an absolute delight to work with. Nothing is ever too much bother and I have been blown away by how incredibly talented he is. Always takes the time to explain his reasoning for certain aspects of his design and has been very adaptable to a number of different briefs. He is our go to guy for all our design needs. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.'

“Ensuring our website engaged with 16-24 year olds was essential to the success of our campaign. Thankfully we found Ian who had previous experience of designing creative web sites, animations and publicity work aimed at targeting youth markets. His unique artistic style, which has a wide-appeal, allowed us to highlight important road safety messages in an engaging and non authoritive way. We look forward to continue to work with Ian.

“In the same spirit of humorist P.G.Wodehouse, the illustrations by Rollin McGrail rib upper class foibles in a jocular fashion. A contemporary artist, her work has graced gallery walls from Paris to New York and has been featured in countless publications including weekly columns the New York Times and the Washington Post.

“"Andy is everything you need in an illustrator. Creative, approachable, reliable and extremely talented. I’ve worked with Andy on a few projects and each and every one has turned out better than expected. I commissioned him to create a mascot for my education company InspirEd Workshops. The Mascot was brilliant, so good that I then asked him to create a channel ident which would appear at the end of our videos.
I will continue to go to Andy for all of my illustration and animation needs and would recommend him to everyone".

We selected Rachel on the quality of her portfolio and were delighted with the ideas she came up with. She worked to the brief, and also brought her own creative flair to the project. I'd like to work with Rachel again soon and thoroughly recommend her as a supplier.

“In July 2015 I contacted James following a recommendation from a colleague who said he would be perfect to help illustrate the 15/16 campaign for Ice Rink Canary Wharf. I'm so pleased I did. James was professional from the outset and took every measure to understand exactly what we needed. Despite the very tight time constraints we had given James, his enthusiasm and work ethic on the project was brilliant. Another commendable point is James' ability to transfer his detailed work to appear perfectly on large outdoor advertising formats, something I found few illustrators could achieve. We have

“"In 2008 I was looking for a designer to translate design ideas I had into reality and had the very good fortune to find Anna. Right from the start she was extremely easy and personable to work with and proved to have a real understanding of what I was looking for. She has endless amounts of patience and I have been delighted with the results of the projects we have worked on together. I am very happy to recommend her to anyone looking for an illustrator."
Kate Geissmann, Creative Director, French Flo
“James illustrative work is driven by his passion for the craft. Although James possesses countless illustrative abilities, I find that he has a real niche for what I would describe as an abstract, hyper-realism. I commissioned James to create a very stylized title for me to use within my Youtube web series comedy sketch, "Hoop Conspiracies: Boston". James was incredibly easy to work with and not only captured my envisioned concept, but greatly surpassed my expectations. James Hartzell is an excellent illustrator with an extremely wide range of diversity and I highly recommend his art.
