Chris Bodily is a talented illustrator and designer. He is also the consummate professional, patient and collaborative. Even though he's the artist and I'm not, he was great about working with me to figure out what I wanted and what would look good, too. He tried different things along the way, creative and proactive. I highly recommend Chris—the final cover is just wonderful!

The entire experience of working with Chris was fantastic! He communicated frequently and responded promptly. His ability to create soulful characters drew me to his work, and I'm thrilled with the piece he created for this project.
