Flying Frog Studio created illustrations for a book I wrote for my kids. Cristal easily translated my vision into something tangible for this project and I hope to work with her again.Dec 4, 2017VerifiedFlying Frog Studio's reply

Thank you Patrice! Looking forward to working with you again!
Cristal was awesome to work with. She did the illustrations for a children's book I wrote, titled "Invisible She." She really brought my illustrations to life. She was very proactive the entire process; making sure I was satisfied with her work every step of the way. Cristal also did the cover art for a book I'm in the process of editing, titled "Roads Diverged." I am new to the professional world of writing/publishing. She went above and beyond in assisting me. She also assisted the formatting/editing company that is helping me release my kids book. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She will get the job done right and in good timing.May 23, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Children's book illustration, I charge a flat per-page rate, at $40.00 per illustrated page, depending on if you need formatting assistance along with illustration work. I have illustrated 20+ books within the last 2 years, so I am efficient, creative and reliable.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to review your thoughts on your project- what are you aiming for? For example, if a children's book, what is your age range? Do you have a particular style you prefer? I am a traditional watercolor and ink artist: I have a playful, somewhat whimsical style. For a book the process: first step is reading through the script! I can assist with page breaks, but always happy to see your ideas as well! After that, we work on character design: this part takes this longest! However, once we figure out the characters, it's smooth sailing. After you approve character design, I sketch quick page layout drafts: this is for illustration placement on the page. After you approve those, I do final watercolor paintings for you! Regardless of project type, I work with you EACH step!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts with emphasis on drawing from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. I also participate in art festivals to get an idea of what new work is being produced by fellow artists. Member of Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
