Celeste Sullivan, Chicago, Il March 14, 2015 I hired Minar to do face painting for my granddaughter's 1st birthday party. There was more kids than we had anticipated and Minar never complained. She was very professional through the whole event even when the kids kept knocking over display board. The parents and children adored the artwork. She arrived at the scheduled time and stayed until the party was over. I'll most definetly be hiring her for my family reunion in the summer

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.

He has served us in multiple capacities from Face Painting Services to being the Illustrator on a number of my wife's children's books. He is accommodating, completely customizable, and personable. We are repeat happy customers and you will be too!

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/

Working with illustrator/designer Ryan Huseman of Huseman Designs has been an absolute pleasure. Aside from his astounding skill and hard work, I also found his dedication, professionalism and communication with me remarkable. I came out with a far better product than I could have hoped for when looking for an illustrator for a children's book series I had written. I wholeheartedly recommend him for any design work you are currently needing done.

Margarete's deep connection to the natural world and exquisite artistic skills take us to new places or familiar places when we view her work. She did contract work for me back in 1993 creating visuals for a non-profit with an environmental twist. Lilttle did I know that when I asked to to do a graphic map of the Penobscot River Watershed that it would adorn thousands of t-shirts over the next 10 years. This was at the beginning stages of our artistic relationship, the collection since then continues - the most recent from last fall which was one of her amazing birds nests. Thank you Margarete for the many visual delights over the years and the new book you recently illustrated, Woody and the Candle Mountain. We now have a Candle Mountain growing in our house.

I hired Meagan to illustrate a book cover for my book. She was very professional, and contacted me right away so we could discuss ideas and details about the cover. The end result was amazing, and I'm very happy with the cover she produced.
