~What people are saying about Ethan~

"I hired Ethan to illustrate my children’s book. Working with him was such a pleasure! He is extremely talented, creative, kind, thorough, and prompt! He was patient, and understanding, and walked me through the entire process as I’m a complete newbie to this game. The illustrations were not just BEAUTIFUL but so well thought out! He truly brought my story to life and made it even better than I could’ve ever imagined! I can’t thank him enough and look forward to working with him on more projects! Sorry Ethan you’re stuck with me!”


“Ethan is an outstanding artist, who understands how to capture the emotion of a character.

My husband and myself have worked with him for the last couple of months and have found him to be attentive, responsible, and always follows through with what he says he will do.

He is amazing to work with.

Short and sweet I highly recommend Ethan!! He is fantastic and super talented! We will surely be hiring Ethan again!"


“Honestly, I have worked with a lot of freelance artists and Ethan truly checks all of the boxes that someone is looking for when hiring an artist.

His professionalism, attention to detail, communication, and follow-through are just some of the reasons I would recommend Ethan, and will definitely be hiring him again soon.

Ethan was absolutely dedicated to bringing the vision to life and he is a true creative catch for anyone trying to enhance their project in a timely fashion.

Thanks again Ethan and we will be reaching out soon!"
