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. You can peruse more of my work at ARTISTMURPHY.COM 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.
