Your welcome. Can you tell me a bit more about your experience with helping me create this cover for you?
I needed an artist to do my second book cover and Claudia was a good fit. She was able to mimic the style I wanted, added her own touches, and created an excellent eye-catching cover that I'm very happy with. She kept me updated frequently through email and finished the project quicker than I anticipated. She formatted it perfectly so it uploaded into the publisher's software with no problems.

Thank you so much Ellen. Just saw the "respond" option.
Claudia Wolf illustrated my book, Mitzi and Joey, and I am delighted that I found her through Thumbtack. Her illustrations are unique, and since the time frame is in the 40's, she reflected the 'look' of that period in the clothing and furnishings, etc. Mitzi's image on the cover of the book will attract anyone who is a kid or a kid at heart.Mar 1, 2016
I hired Caludia to execute a book cover and five interior illustrations for a mystery novel. They were uniformly excellent and added much to the story. She was attentive to the dramatic flow of the novel, responsive to suggestions, and communicative as the project moved forward. Her artistic imagination was able to capture the author's intent admirably. I would hire her again without hestitation.Feb 29, 2016Claudia W.'s reply
Thank you Kendall. The project was interesting, and I enjoyed it very much.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each project is quoted differently, due to the many different requirements of each project and client.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I talk with a new client and take notes as to what they need. I will do a sketch, and show the client, to see if we are on the same page. Then I go to the color finish phase. If changes are necessary, I make them and make sure the client approves. There is an additional step in children's books. Before sketch phase, I do a "thumbnail" sketch phase, which is a page of tiny sketches in sequence, to show the flow of pages, usually on one or two pages.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went to the Paier School of Art, where I excelled at painting and illustration. I am always learning new things and keeping up on new programs.
