Illustration for a poem
Posted 9 months ago and submitted by Lyn Stone | Share link:

Tyger Tyger, burning bright, 
In the forests of the night; 
What immortal hand or eye, 
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

The first verse of William Blake’s The Tyger poem. I do occasionally work conventionally with my hands, a brush and paint, and this is one example. Funnily enough it was used to illustrate a poem for a client, so I feel the William Blake poetry is appropriate.

This has been hand-drawn and painted using artist’s quality watercolour paint on handmade watercolour paper. I actually prefer working this way, but digital art is often a more practical way of working, but it does rather depend on the commission. Some publishers require you to submit final artwork in ‘layers’, which, of course, is only possible if you have created the artwork digitally. So you can see what I mean!

I was looking for an artist to help me create my business logo and branding for my business. With so many artists to choose from I was thrilled when I found Lyn Stone on Hire an Illustrator. Her whimsical style, finesse, and talent set her far above the countless others. Being new to the experience of hiring an artist, it was reassuring that Lyn was so helpful and walked me through the entire process. After thoroughly gathering my ideas, she rendered a beautifully designed logo with branding and illustrations that I couldn’t be happier with. Her artwork is super fun, clever, and makes you smile! I love all her pieces she has displayed on her profile and I knew she would be able to make my vision come to life. I highly recommend Lyn Stone; she is a top-notch professional and a joy to work with!
