I am an artist who's getting back into the field. I am currently in the process of upgrading my portfolio because my current one is a little outdated. I can draw just about anything that I see (portraits, still-life, anything), and I can also freestyle from my subconscious. My influences are Dahli, Degas, Basquiat and Magritte. I would love to work with a large range of poeple who share the same passion as I do for art. I am not a cartoonist or whatever other label people like to place on themselves, but if I had to choose one...I am simply an artist who finds inspiration everywhere I go.

A professional illustrator is able to show your readers everything about your story that your manuscript does not say. They create a world for your characters to live in.

I can handle every need to turn your manuscript in to a book in hand. I offer an "all-in-one" service where you can get both your illustration and publishing needs taken care of. After your illustrations have been completed, I can take you all the way through the rest of the publishing process too!

I specialize in children's picture books, cover design, chapter books, educational material, and E-Books/kindles and more.

My illustration process We will work together to make sure that the characters are how you envisioned them! 1. For each page of the book I will create an illustration. I will email the illustration to you one at a time. 2. With each illustration you receive you will have the opportunity to look it over and decide if you would like any minor changes. 3. Once your approval is received and changes have been made I will then proceed to the next one.This process will be repeated until the book is done, giving you complete control over the outcome of each illustration. I will listen very closely to your suggestions and do my very best to give you what you ask for! Partnership As a professional children's illustrator, I understand the importance of creating characters kids will love! I believe in the wonderful partnership between an author and illustrator who work together to create something that a child will read over and over. Thank you for considering me for your project. I feel it is an honor anytime an author is willing to place his/her faith in my abilities to bring their dream to life! With true appreciation, Rosemarie

Heyyoooo!!! My name is Rustam Mark Gutierrez and I am a traditionally trained painter and alumni of Mason Gross School of the Arts. Growing up with a love for comics, my beginning journey into painting began with aspirations of being the next Frank Frazetta, Alex Ross, Simon Bisley, and Glenn Fabry. As my artwork matured, I began to look to portrait and figurative masters such as Lucian Freud, Alice Neel, and Norman Rockwell. Today I try to incorporate all my learned skills when working on a new piece, whether it be a portrait or a comic image. I work in both acrylic and oil, depending on the speed in which the piece must be completed and usually the size. Please do not hesitate to contact me on my rates. You can also check out my instagram page @rustammgutierrez . Thank YOU!!!

Dear Prospective Employer: I'm a repped comic/video game/screenwriter with extensive experience and knowledge in all mediums of writing, who I think you might be interested in. Last month I wrote the trailer for an upcoming video game developed by CCP Games (Eve Franchise). At current, I have a Sci-Fi/Thriller feature, "Flashes," (Donny Boaz - "Dallas," Elle LaMont - "Machete Kills") which is currently in post-production and to be released this summer. As of last September, I optioned another Sci-Fi/Thriller feature to a VFX Supp (who worked on AVATAR, I AM LEGEND, 300, etc.) looking to make his foray into directing. In January 2013, my ongoing comic “Noctua” was picked up by New York Times Best-Selling Publisher Alterna Comics. Earlier last Spring I wrote the proof-of-concept short for RAIDER: ORIGINS in anticipation of Crystal Dynamics new Tomb Raider video game, which they subsequently used for marketing. I'm currently in negotiations with Humanoids Publishing to work on a Graphic Novel to be released both in the States and abroad. With regards to TV, I'm currently developing two separate Pilots with a Canadian Producer who is pitching the projects to networks both locally and in the States. In addition to my own projects, I've done a number of Ghost Writing, Contract, and Work for Hire assignments for notable writers and directors. From a corporate perspective, I've worked as a Copywriter and headed up Sales & Marketing for The Henderson Collection (portfolio link in my resume). I’ve also worked on copious freelance assignments for copywriting, technical writing, and ad agencies (most recently, Admerica). I've attached my resume below, along with several samples and links, and please don't hesitate to ask if you'd like to see any further samples or have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon. http://www.imdb.me/andrewmhenderson http://hendersondesigns.com/Henderson_BlackGold.pdf http://www.comixology.com/Noctua/comics-series/10147 www.linkedin.com/in/andrewmhenderson1/ Thanks & Regards, Andrew M.
