Book Illustrator Oakland

For authors working on picture books, finding the right images that will captivate readers is of utmost importance. A good book illustrator will be able to breathe life into your characters and bring your story to life.

But finding the right illustrator may be difficult for many self-published authors, especially those who aren’t quite sure what they need. For instance, it is important to understand the various styles used by illustrators, so you can know exactly which one you want — don’t hire a line artist if what you want is lush, colorful illustrations! Likewise, illustrators who work on fairy tales will not have the same style as those who work on novels. This is why you need a collaborative partner who has experience in your specific genre and who has work to show for it, so you can clearly imagine what your book will look like if you hire them.

At Reedsy, we have some of the best book illustrators in Oakland, who can provide all sorts of illustration styles for your book. Sign up to meet them and start requesting quotes!
