I am a professional illustrator based in Latvia and I have worked with authors from Europe and North America. I illustrate using traditional and digital media. As an academically trained artist, I'm interested in a certain level of detail and realism and I always strive to produce quality art. I can do title design and book layout- create your book from A-Z like I did with my two books, that have been published by Zvaigzne ABC. My experience with casual game illustration can come in handy if you're interested in expanding your book to interactive mediums.
I can work both very independently and with strong direction. You're a bit confused as to what would be the best approach- let me guide you through, so that we find the most pleasing solution!
Maybe you already have a strong vision that corresponds to my style and would like to retain a high level of control? Great!
In any case I provide revisions and room for discussion on every step.
