William has produced a variety of artwork for me over the last few years. Along with commissions for website art and posters, he has also produced a large number of animations for my Twitch channel. These have really helped to create a unique brand that my audience really loves, and his art style lends itself well to a range of concepts and themes. All artwork he has produced has been to a high standard and promptly delivered, with very fair pricing. He is very good at following the brief given to him and will make sure that you are both on the same page before he starts the artwork.

Portfolio | Website


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.

Simon took our initial concept to very loose script and created a list of illustrations we needed to make our whiteboard video simply work. He delivered the first few illustrations in sketch form, and we knew he was going to nail it. On budget and on time every step of the way, Simon was not only a genius illustrator but a lovely person to work with. He has a talent for taking the everyday and making it sing. He delighted our audience with his clever and cute characters, and went beyond what we thought was even possible. We'd work with him again in a heartbeat.

Roberto Gonzalez's work is fantastic! I have hired him to illustrate 5 children's books, and to do other projects. His illustrations are amazing and he is always very professional. He listens to what I want and produces the artwork well and in a timely fashion.. We've worked together for over 2 years now - and I highly recommend him! Recently, one book we did together "11X Magic" won a NABE Pinnacle Achievement Award for Best Book in the category of Children's Educational. The illustrations would definitely have had a huge part in this. It's the 2nd award that I won with him.

Paul Loudon created approximately 90 artworks for me for a series of children’s reading books. The brief was to create a set of characters in a naturalistic style to complement a more graphic approach within the books.

His work was well-timed and amends were carried out promptly. I would definitely work with Paul again.

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.

DAC Group recently used Clayton for a live action mural during a round-table event in Toronto. From initial contact to execution the experience was seamless. Clayton ensured that he fully understood the project, negotiated competitive pricing on all of the materials and attended the event with enthusiasm and professionalism. Post event he went above and beyond creating additional materials for publication and producing them in less than 48hrs. I would recommend Clayton to anyone looking for a skilled and versatile illustrator - you will not be disappointed.

"[Doyle's] seemingly incomplete brushstrokes form the feathers and other details of the animal. In some strange way it reminds me of the story of the Renaissance painter Giotto who is rumored to have been able to draw a perfect circle without the aid of a compass, as if Doyle just picks up a dripping paint brush and in a few seconds paints a perfect bird. In reality his work demonstrates a profound control of the paintbrush and careful understanding of the mediums he works with."

We really loved working with Vicky. We noticed her artwork immediatley when trying to decide on an artist, because unlike a lot of retro artwork out there hers had a very natural and playful feel to it. Vicky took our feedback on-board, stayed enthusiastic and delivered more than we were expecting. We couldn’t have asked for more and we’re very happy to have her artwork featured in our #TileArt gallery.

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.

I employed Graeme as the sole illustrator and designer on The Dangerous Book of Heroes. The quality of his work was excellent and he was great at understanding what we at HarperCollins needed, and at doing it quickly too. It was a complicated project, and the drawings needed to be historically accurate as well as engaging for the reader and Graeme was particularly good at paying attention to the details which were important to us and the author. The project was on a tight timescale and he rose to the challenge, producing everything in time and to budget, with great creativity, speed and care.

He has proved to be a highly personable young man, dedicated to his work, affable - and a stickler for deadlines too!
