We commissioned Bonnie to produce a Christmas postcard we could use to send to all of our customers. We had a rough idea of what we were after and Bonnie made the whole project a breeze. With helpful ideas and full transparency throughout, we were left with an amazing piece of work we could showcase to our customers and we couldn’t be more pleased with the illustrations. Thanks, Bonnie. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

David Habben is an awesome illustrator and a pleasure to work with. His talent and experience is an asset to my publication. Since the first time I have worked with David he has been professional and creative in all his work. David is always prompt and keeps within deadlines. David has a great working process from concept to final version. He takes our ideas and creates wonderful illustrations to compliment our articles. Often, his alternative ideas are a better option and we will use those instead.

To illustrate a map that is clear and easily understood is no simple task. Bek Cruddace not only managed that for Balmoral, but produced an attractive piece of artwork that will be the envy of our neighbouring visitor attractions.

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.

“Martin designed, illustrated and formatted five books covers for me (front and full covers). He also completed a logo redesign. His ideas were imaginative and practical, resulting in a cohesive set of covers that I couldn’t have envisaged myself. Throughout the process, he was extremely responsive and helpful, and always willing to make tweaks to the designs as requested. I’ll definitely be using Martin’s services again in the future."

Jim is fantastic to work with. I had the pleasure of hiring Jim a few years ago to work with us on the Dixie Riddle Cups and Riddle Cups packaging for Georia-Pacific. Jim contributed to the creative process as well as creating the illustrations. Jim is extremely enthusiastic about his work, which is infectious. Jim met all of our deadlines, was easy to work with, and created memorable illustrations for the Riddle Cups that are still being used in the market today. We have hired Jim since to work with us on A&W internal signage, as well as additional Dixie projects.

"Ashly Lovett prepared illustrations of six varied characters for the cover of my book of short stories. Her drawings were in each instance perfectly reflective of the individual nature of the character based on the text and discussions between us. In addition, each drawing was simultaneously realistic and elegant, which is a distinctive aspect of her work, and the colored drawing of the central character beautifully rendered in chalk pastel. She is highly professional and responsive and I give her and her work the highest recommendation."

"We regularly work with illustrators, both experienced and relative newcomers. We consider Alex quite a find. He worked to budget and on time. He was thoughtful and considerate and had lots of ideas. He was amenable to reworking a drawing when we suggested additional or alternative ideas. In all his work, both in colour and black and white, he brought an imaginative approach to the job, using a nice variety of styles and mark-making that we think add style and character. We could not be more pleased with the result and highly recommend his services."
