Stevie Schafer – Designer

I wield my illustration skills to inspire your target audience to pick up that book by crafting full color & eye catching covers.


Let's get your book get into the hands of the people who will fall helplessly in love with it!

I paint full-color, character based illustrations that serve as a vehicle for communicating emotions and ideas. I deal in inspiration, and when people look at my work, that is how they feel. I've been painting for over fifteen years. I was original inspired by the beautiful covers of books I read as a kid.

I'd love to help your next book draw in an abundance of new readers!
