Penny created some wonderful illustrations for a book proposal. She was incredibly responsive and the quality of her work is impeccable. The whole experience exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend Penny.
I am so so fortunate to have been able to work with Keith Hartley, so talented and reliable, hopefully we will share many more children's books together, he is the best, Marei von Saher
After firing my last graphic designer because of his chronic procrasination, missing deadlines, and constantly going overbudget, I was reluctant to hire a new one, but I was surprisingly happily when I found Shay. After we talked about the project and long it would take to complete, he did a few preliminary sketches and we decided on one. A few days later, he sent me the black and white version of the final sketch and then the colored version and it was utterly amazing. The logo was a simple design, but it was really hard to capture, but Shay hit it right on the head! It looked like a logo that normally would have cost a few thousand dollars to design and I was very pleased with it. I was so impressed with Shay's work that I hired him again to redesign a children's book caption for me, and again, I was not disappointed with the final product. Shay was always friendly, enthusiastic, and he called, texted, and emailed me all the time to ask for my inut. He did go over budget, but only by a few dollars, but I had already told him that if extra time was needed, it was okay. Also, he is very business and sent me all the paperwork for the design, which I was unaccustomed to, but it was refreshing. Tiberius St. Judge Writer/ Chief Creative Officer at SpoonPen Publishing
I hired Bill to work out illustrations for a self-published children's book. The book is based on my dog. He did a great job re-creating my dog from photos that I submitted. Bill is creative, and detail oriented; not to mention extremely easy to work with. I would hire him for my next illustration job.
Outstanding truly isn't a high enough rating for Corne & Enroc. I have been a repeat client of theirs for several years. I am always amazed by their artistic vision, talent, and the stunning artwork they create. Every project turns out better than I could have ever imagined it. Beyond Incredible!!! In addition to the art & illustrations they have also designed logos, and book covers for me. I cannot ever imagine using any other creative team than Corne & Enroc. My recommendation is if you are lucky enough to use them for your project, look no farther - your search is over, for you have found one of the Absolute Best Creative Design Teams in the World!!!

Elwood Grier designed the cover art for my chapbook. I was so pleased I sought him out for the cover of my full length nonfiction text God’s Daughter (JonesInk, 2010). The art work stood out in such a way, when I attended book shows and signings, other attendee’s initial compliments would be on the cover’s frame worthy design. Professional and creative, Mr. Grier is already slated to complete the artwork for my upcoming poetry collection. Myla Jones, author
As an art director at a medical publisher I know I can count on Joseph to produce high quality, creative work. Joseph is always professional, patient, and willing to go the extra mile. He can take projects with tight deadlines and still produce great looking work. His work is always creative and technically precise, even when working with demanding editors and authors. Joseph has also become my go to person when I have jobs that require technical photoshop work. I've worked with Joseph for nearly 9 years and overall it has been a great experience.
Joshua designed my book cover and we were able to complete the project in one day. I was very impressed by his level of professionalism. He was very nice and easy to work with. I loved his level of enthusiasm to see the project through to the end. I am very pleased I chose his service and I look forward to using his services again. Thank you Joshua Benson, truly a pleasure
Claudia Wolf produced the full color illustrations for a board book my small firm is publishing. She is an exceptionally talented and thoroughly professional artist. She began the project by carefully reviewing the text her pictures would support. We then discussed what the author and I felt the illustrations should be during which Claudia had many excellent suggestions. After taking us through the process of sketches, line drawings, and color selections she produced illustrations which totally support and truly enhance the humor theme of the book. She then designed the page layout to meet the precise requirements of the printer. And when the layout had to be modified for an e-book she worked directly with the e-publisher to quickly have it ready. Claudia completed the project within the time she estimated and her fee was exactly as her contract represented. Equally important, Claudia proved to be absolutely delightful and wonderfully straight forward to work with. I will most certainly want her to do any future illustration work needed.
Jaun Raza illustrated the cover and interior one of my recent books, The Magic Umbrella of Oz, by Paul Dana, and the cover of Queen Ann in Oz, both books published by The Royal Publisher of Oz. Both the author and I were thrilled by three signifcant factors that Raza brought to the table: 1) the quality of his work, which is astounding, detailed, beautiful and profoundly reflective of what we were looking for. Oftentimes, it would even exceed what we had envisioned. 2) A high level of professionalism; he communicates, listens well, strives hard to please, and submits his work on time. 3) An ability to comprehend what the narrative needs and how best to illustrate it; this allows him to both work independently when the need calls for it, and interdependently, in that he takes direction from the author and publisher when they have certain specific requirements that must be met (be it character images, locations, etc.) I am not only thrilled with Raza's work, but fully intend to use him again on future projects. You simply cannot go wrong with this illustrator.
When I was writing a memoir, Art's Cello, a few years ago, I wanted illustrations. But not photographs -- I was looking for something that would mirror the creativity of making a cello. I decided on drawings. Jack's work caught my eye: realistic but unique. I ended up using his illustrations in the print version of the book; the digital edition was published by Kindle, and selected as one of the 20 best books of 2014. Aside from the work, which was superb, I was really impressed by his professionalism: he prioritized it, worked fast, and was extremely good at working with me to realize the admittedly vague ideas of what I had in mind. The result was better than I could have hoped for: he brought the world of cello-making to life.
Jennie did an amazing job. The clients loved her. Will definitely book her again for future events.
Liz was outstanding to work with, so accommodating and cooperative. A pleasure at every meeting. She illustrated my picture book for me and it is fantastic! Her other work is impressive as well.
