Tom did some amazing graphic design work for my apparel company. I found him through thumbtack and thought his designs would be perfect for our brand. Tom was extremely helpful and available to talk anytime we had questions or feedback. The designs are extremely high quality and he designed them exactly to our speicifications. Also had them done extremely quickly for that level of quality. We plan to continue working with Tom and suggest him to anyone looking for quality content.Sep 23, 2019Tom Arvis Cartoons & Illustrations's reply
Dan has been a great pleasure to work with, and his ideas are solid and entertaining. I look forward to producing many more t-shirt designs for Dan and his company. Thanks, Dan!
I consider myself very lucky to have found Tom. The art is great, he's easy to work with, and his fee is very fair. I'd work with him again in a heartbeat.Sep 20, 2019Tom Arvis Cartoons & Illustrations's reply
David's 10-page comic story is captivating and his script is witty, timely and poignant. I'd be happy to work with him again and hope to do so soon.

Tom was easily accessible and provided all costs associated with the work with no surprises.Sep 23, 2019Tom Arvis Cartoons & Illustrations's reply
This job involved creating a logo for the client's podcast, as well as a banner and podcast cover, including caricatures of Brandon and his podcast partner. There were little to no revisions and Brandon was a pleasure to work with.
I had a great experience working with Tom Arvis. He was so hopefully during the entire process and professional. Any issues, changes, or ideas I had he listen and did everything in a timely manner. I can't thank him enough for the great work he did & all his help!Jan 16, 2019Tom Arvis Cartoons & Illustrations's reply
I produced a 12 page full color personalized comic book for Alison, and manged to squeeze a 24-page script into 11 pages. Alison was understanding, flexible, gracious, and an all around pleasure to work with- and she introduced me to a new way to accept payment through Venmo.com. thereby expanding the number of payment methods I can now offer my clients. Her revisions were very few and minor.
Working with Tom was fantastic. He was incredibly fast and was able to create exactly what our "Tiger Snooze" brand was looking for just off of a few correspondences via email. He responded quickly and delivered ahead of the deadline we established. We did need a couple revisions which was entirely understandable to get our desired look for the character we wanted to have illustrated. Tom made those revisions in a timely fashion and we could not have been more pleased with the end product.Nov 19, 2018Tom Arvis Cartoons & Illustrations's reply
Matt is actually a family friend, but this did not effect his professionalism. His instructions were clear and I enjoyed creating the look of his "Tiger Snooze" mascot charcter. I rely on Matt for help when I run into website construction problems and he is always willing to help. He also paid promptly and I hope to work with him again soon.
