Hello there, I am freelancer who loves to create bold and detailed illustrations for children's books! It is a very fun process which starts out with a discussion with you so that all the project details are established. Once we agree to collaborate, I will create sketches for the illustrations on paper which then get submitted to you for the opportunity to review and provide feedback. Once you are satisfied with this milestone, I will develop the sketches into the final compositions which can be done in any media whether digital (Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator) or traditional, including paint, watercolor pencils, charcoal, and graphite pencils. As with the preliminary sketches, this finished work will also be submitted to you. If you plan to self publish, I will format the content, using Adobe InDesign, and I am very familiar with Create Space.
My background in the design/illustration field consists of Graphic Design Certification from Allentown Business School; Allentown PA in December 2001) and a B.A.degree in Studio Art from Hood College; (Frederick Maryland) in May of 1994. My work experience in this area includes the creation of 10 illustrations, plus cover and formatting of "Wally and His Adventures With Cleo" by Dolores Hans (January 2018 - April 2018). I also illustrated and formatted the book "Kayla and Kyle Plant Corn" for author Mary Streitmatter (July 2017-September 2017). Portfolio samples and references are available on my profile and portfolio, and you may also see my work on Behance by accessing the following link: https://www.behance.net/lssk1971.
