I really appreciate what Sabina Islam and her team did to launch my first children book. She kept giving me suggestion discussing different aspects of the Illustrations on different pages. The details on the design for each page were outstanding and highly creative. Also Sabina Islam took care of everything from creating logo, business cards, stationary, rack cards, printing, website development, hosting domain registration, organic search engine optimization and online marketing. When everything was completed I was just ready to promote my book. I am very happy that I found her. I really appreciate her honest endeavor.

David is a very dependable illustrator. He came out on multiple jobs for me at a moments notice and produced. While the finished product was perfect, he also did not hesitate to put in the extra time to make sure all of my needs were fulfilled. He also was absolutely worth the price he provided. His paintings/murals were an absolute hit to myself and my client. You will definitely be happy with the result you get from Avid.

Steve designed a book cover for my book which came out in 2013. Despite being long distance, working with Steve was a pleasure as he was easy to get in touch with. What I like about working with Steve is that he takes the time to get to know his clients and their needs/wishes and works hard to make it happen. Last but not least, he is very patient with revisions and questions which I am very grateful for.

Yukari is the best for your artistic needs. She is great to work with and very patient. She also works fast and cheap. She created the artwork for the cover of my novel and she did a fantastic job in about five days. Don't pass her up if you need artwork for your project.

Dawn created a phenomenal atmosphere at two of our car washes and we will ask her to do the same at our current wash under construction. At our first location she created wall tiles that the children in the neighborhood could paint and then we placed them in the wall. This created a permanent memory for the kids. Dawn was easy to work with, creative, and an incredible artist. We also use her images to create a coloring book that we give out to the kids at all of our washes

Gia was amazing. It was my son's 1st birthday and we had a Dr. Seuss theme. She worked on some options for the kids to go with the theme and sent me a preview. She is absolutely talented and has a great personality. The entire family loved her and so did all the kids who kept going back for more than one face painting. Can't wait to book her again. Thank you Gia for being a part of our special day :)

I've had the good fortune to work with Mr. Jose Rodriguez on more than one occasion. He did 2 Award winning Book Covers that were published and one of those may be used for a movie poster. The book is entitled "Lost in the Sun" and a screenplay has just been written in reference to the book and story. Mr. Rodriques is extremely talented and I highly recomment him for any artistic work you may wish to have created.

Working with Matt Geiler on my PosiKids Book Series was a wonderful and patient collaboration. As a first time author I made many mistakes that had to be corrected and Matt was so patient. The creativity and beautiful illustrations that Matt merged with my stories, were a delight for me and the reaction I get when people look at the covers of my books is the best compliment I could share. Hoping to work with Matt again on a second series!

I am a new author and after several interviews with other artists, I chose Ian to hand paint the art for my child’s book. I had a vision... I wanted a very classic and organic, personal look, and feel for this book. Not an easy task. Thank goodness.. Not only is Ian gifted and talented, he is passionate and an extremely imaginative individual. He had open ears to all my ideas and met every expectation and vision I had for this book. He was professional, punctual and hit every dead line given. As a writer, It can be so difficult to communicate a vision to someone and then have it translated to paper...on top of this experience being brand new to me and the learning curve that comes with it. With that being said, His communication and patience with me and this book was more than I could have ever asked for from an artist ...It made this experience so much fun for me and We were a wonderful team. He went above and beyond for this project on several occasions. I’m looking forward to many more years of publishing and watching my stories come to life with him as my artist.

I absolutely love the work he did. He took some basic napkin sketches and made some amazing Dr Seuss style illustrations from them for a children's book I made as a gift. He was also very accommodating to my random requests and alterations. I highly recommend hiring him for your project.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mondo on many projects over the last 2 years. My company designs and sells custom lapel pins and Mondo was able to take our customers ideas and turn them into a reality. Creating artwork for lapel pins is a much different process than most and Mondo was able to quickly learn the factory requirements and implement them. We have a fast turnaround time and he was always able to meet our deadline. Mondo is very conscientious about the quality of his work. In this world of social media, and doing business by email, I found it refreshing that Mondo would pick up the phone and call to ask questions and get a good feel for what the customer wanted. Mondo would make a great addition to any team. I highly recommend him for employment.

I have worked with Monica Meza over the last four years and there is a huge reason why I keep using her. Because she is the BEST. The first job I contracted her for was as the illustrator of four children's books. As an artist, she captures the true essence of the characters written and there is so much love in her work. From there, I have had her design over twenty websites, countless storyboards, and numerous other art projects. I have referred her to my closest business colleagues, all who rave about the work and how easy she is to work with. She seriously is the best kept secret in Los Angeles.

New To Thumbtack


    I have been fortunate enough to have my hard work recognized. I have been published twice as a book cover designer/illustrator (Zoe by Nkem DenChukwu), and I have had my logos used for various companies including GFK HomeHealthCare and SAYE. Print Design is my niche, and going into publications dealing with layouts, magazines, and typography is what I am looking for. Passion, blood, sweat, tears, and such hard work got me my BFA degree (my proudest accomplishment), and my dedication shows in every single one of my pieces. I want to learn more, do more, and earn more, and I hope to one day find the company to get me to my dream of art director.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
