I fell in love with Karine's illustrations from the very first sketch she sent me. Since then I've only fallen deeper! Karine was such a pleasure to work with. She really got my vision and my project looks amazing! It's something I'm really proud of, and part of that is down to Karine. If you are on the fence, I highly highly highly recommend her.

I am beyond lucky to have found Karine. After months of looking for an illustrator, I instantly knew she would be able to bring my story to life from her first sketch of one of my main characters. She has been the most incredible partner and is the epitome of what my book is all about - kindness. You can feel her kindness and respect through each and every email she sends. Having jumped into a world that I knew very little about, she reminded me often "to enjoy the journey". Since she shared those words with me, every step has been so fun because I have trusted her, her kindness, her talent & expertise, and her passion. Thank you, Karine, for every awesome curl, every incredible character and scene you have brought to life, and every tiny aspect that you have added to make the book even more authentic and original because of how much you care. I am so grateful for you - may you know how special and lovely you are.

Karine did an incredible job! I was so nervous to hire an illustrator but she went above and beyond my expectations. She was able to bring my story to life with every detail. I will definitely use her services again in the future! Book: Cowboy Graham and the Jalapeno Jam

Karine, is an amazing artist! She brought my children's book to life! Her illustrations surpassed my expectations. Karine conveyed onto page what was in my head. She is extremely easy to work with and very professional. I would recommend Karine to anyone who has a project in their head and has no idea what the next step is. Remember Karine Makartichan for your next project.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We estimate an entire project upfront based on a per-illustration cost. Most illustration projects are in the 120$-180$ range, depending on: 1. Illustration Style - cartoon, realistic, whimsical. 2. Illustration Medium - watercolor, digital, pencil. 3. Illustration Details - number of characters per page, background details.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1. FREE TRIAL: We create a free trial sketch so customers can estimate our working quality and speed BEFORE signing a contract and making any payments. 2. SCRIPT AND DESCRIPTION After confirming the trial sketch, we require a story script and detailed description for each illustration to start the project. 3. PREPAYMENT: In addition, 50% prepayment is required before proceeding to the main project. 4. SKETCHING: Within a week or so, we provide sketches of the entire project for a preview. 5. COLORING: After approving the sketches, we begin the coloring stage. 6. FINAL PAYMENT: The customer makes the remaining 50% payment after the approval of the final colored illustrations. 7. LAYOUT & COVER DESIGN We also provide book layout and cover design services - wrapping up newly created illustrations in a beautiful book design.
