About REL Illustrations

I am an illustrator/graphic designer and have been in business since 2004. I have illustrated for 5 children's books (some of which are published and some which have started the publishing process). I've worked on various projects including graphic designs for postcards, banners, business cards, business logos, character designs for an animation studio, etc. although I specialize in illustrating for children's books.
My style runs more toward the animated "Disney" style, much so that many have mistaken me for being a Disney animator. My goal when illustrating is to be able to bring my author's story to life like never before, and bring satisfaction and honesty to all my authors. So far, thank God, I have not had any complaints from anyone I have done artwork for. I dig deep into the story and try to design the characters so they have a unique personality just by looking at them, which is reflected by the way they are described in the text. My favorite part about being an illustrator is the character designs. To take descriptions from someone's imagination and create a whole new character with personality always fascinates me.
I am a timely person and work as quickly as I can and I do not procrastinate. I am honest and will openly share with you my opinions and help you bring out the best in your book if you ever get stuck or need help. Ninety percent of the time, I end up imagining what the illustrations will look like, because my authors trust my judgment of the characters and anticipate to see what I see in my imaginative mind. I charge per illustration and not per hour.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Children's books (since I have a passion for cartoons), but I do perform a number of different styles regardless.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. It is very hard to find an artist in whom you can trust, has quality work, is efficient, works from the heart, and receives the real benefit from the finished work and not the compensation. I say if you find a trustable artist, you have extra bonus points.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I provide trustable, quality service in an efficient and timely manner. I am truly dedicated to my work and perform the best I possibly can for my clients.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Being able to bring what someone else sees to "life".
