I am an illustrator/designer with a special love for words and pictures. I am also a writer and my children's book titled "There's a Dragon in my Closet" was published by Simon and Schuster. In an age of all things digital, I still love the printed page and I’m an avid reader. My work has a timeless feel with a touch of modern flair. Some of my early influences are art deco and classic travel posters. My illustration style is what I call “designustration”. Not only do I illustrate, but I also have a knack for typography and title design. I like to integrate the two into one harmonious image. I currently run a design/illustration studio in Stone Mountain, GA. We‘ve worked with a lot of high profile clients and I’ve built a career on customer satisfaction.
I love the process of taking a story or an idea and bringing it to life. One of my most gratifying feelings comes from creating works that really satisfy a client’s vision. My process starts with a deep dive into the clients’ vision, creating a mood board and then developing rough thumbnail concepts. Once we hone in on the direction, the real creativity begins!
“Working with Dorothea was a dream! Our organization found her work online, and we were taken aback by the quality of her designs. We found her illustrations to be evocative, inspirational, modern, and simply impeccable. We reached out to her, and received a prompt response. When it came time to coordinate the artwork we were hoping to commission, Dorothea took our thoughts and requests into consideration, and the level of customer service was above reproach. In the end, we received artwork that was totally in line with our expectations, and then some. We would rate our experience with Dorothea as a 10 out of 10, and would jump at the opportunity to work with her again!” ~ Kelsea Médard, Grow By Three
"It was a pleasure working with TP Design Services. They made the process smooth and worry free. My artist, Dorothea worked with me to create a unique design for my T-shirt line. She kept me involved in the process from concept to completion and delivered a design that I was very pleased with. Definitely will do business with them again." ~ Michael Williams, Detroit, MI
