I am a freelance artist, muralist and illustrator in Sheboygan Falls, WI
I've illustrated several children's books in a variety of styles, samples of which I'd be glad to share with you.
I've recently finished one entirely by remote, ie. all correspondence and drafts were exchanged electronically - plus a few phone conversations. The client was extremely happy with the results as well as how smoothly and timely the process went.

My fee is basically $38 / finished illustration, (which includes the numerous drafts and preliminaries needed to get it just right).
If this is not within your budget, I'm willing to negotiate;
My priority lies with the success of the project.
