The Process

1. Tell me what your looking for (the brief)

The can be just about anything. Some people already have an image that they need to get out of their head and onto the page and some are more open ended. I’m here to make something great for you. Let me know any colors, the mood of the story and any must have’s within the imagery.

2. Sketching

I’ll create a few thumbnail sketches for you to review. I can usually get these to you within a week. You pick which one works best for you. If you have specific feedback I will work that into a thumbnail. These sketches are usually in color. We can work together to get the perfect image for you.

4. Final Piece

Once the image is approved, I create the final illustration. You will recieve it on or before the due date. I am happy to make small edits free of charge. I’ll ge the final image to you in which ever formatt you need.

This is a fun and exciting process! Your story deserves to be seen, felt, and celebrated – let's make it happen!
