Upon finding out that I needed to submit a "design completed" page for my daughters cotillion book and that I had missed the deadline...SHEER PANIC settled in for me. I pleaded for an extension as I was traveling. They gave me 24 hours! After calling around while in St.Louis, I remembered THUMBTACK! Shannon responded and requested more information about what I needed. I contacted her rambling and frantic, desperately seeking understanding of my issue. Shannon comforted me with her confidence to complete the job in just a few hours. I was able to send her a few photos, describe what I wanted and she created a masterpiece! Shannon is clearly a professional who not only handles escalated requests, she manages with precision, confidence and comfort to the customer. This is the type of service that deserves constant public recognition and the highest accolades possible. I am elated with her work, and regard her highly as others should too. Shannon SAVES LIVES!!!:)

Erick was a hit at our party! He was personable, quick with his drawings, and really personalized each drawing he did for our team. He also came onboard at the last minute for our party! I literally booked him at 9PM the night before and he was on time and ready to go at 1PM for our party. Guests love him. We would definitely recommend him or use him in the future!

    My artist for our children's books brought Rick Torres on board back in 2007. I give our artists and graphic illustrators free hand in any/all their work. I have always been more than impressed with RT's work. "Pendleton the Penguin & His Magical Friends" will be released GLOBALLY this year and we've already rec'd rave reviews about the content of the characters. High marks for Mr. Torres across the board.

    I've worked with Jackie since I began my educational consulting practice in 2008. She designed my website, logo, and all my marketing materials to be visually cohesive and has also done an updating for me as well. My business brand identity is clean, concise and consistent. Colleagues and clients frequently complement me on my sophisticated business card! I really appreciated Jackie's excellent service. She's always responsive, timely and flexible. I'm confident Jackie can manage any project from website design to books and everything in between. I would highly recommend Jackie.

    I have worked with Patrick for over 8 years, for clients including Scholastic and Highlights for Children. He is an especially versatile illustrator whose clever depictions of kids and animals are always spot on for the assignment (often very tricky assignments, as with Hidden Pictures scenes) and usually add thoughtful and humorous touches to our original briefs. Some of his individual illustrations (my favorites include his anthropomorphized insects and fish) have inspired us to create actual series based on the characters, such as the Antics series of inside-back-cover puzzles for Highlights Let's Play Hidden Pictures. Always on time (and timeless — the Scholastic skills book series for which Patrick illustrated the whimsical covers in 2007 are still top sellers at B&N.) Always in the format I need — and always willing to make last minute adjustments or send me versions or elements when needed. Patrick is one of my favorite "go to" illustrators for a variety of clients and types of projects. Sharon Streger Sequel Creative http://www.sequelcreative.com/

      Cara is the best! She does the illustrations for my Miss Jamie's Farm kids music show, and the first question everybody asks me is, "Who does your artwork??" I highly recommend her.

        About

        (I am a prolific artist)My work constantly stands out because of composition and the use of colors and a tiny bit of humor in my works. If not, I do traditional asian paintings to high details. I work with realism, surrealism, abstract and all forms of painting and drawing. I can render well and i know how to make something pop. I am well-rounded in techniques in painting and illustrating( I will be graduating from School of Art Institute of Chicago next year). My works stand out because I put high amount of effort into every piece of my work and it shows when sellers come to see my work because my works are often purchased when shown.
