Andy Nortnik Freelance Illustrator and Cartoonist President, Art By Andy Nortnik, LLC CHECK OUT MY WORK! http://andynortnik.com/contact_rates.htm Bio I am a full-service, illustrator and cartoonist. My specialties include illustration, t-shirt design, logo design, caricatures and cartoon art in digital media. I have a light-hearted and unique style. My background includes over 20 years of illustration experience that I acquired working for such companies as Arthur Andersen as Lead Graphic Designer and MCI WorldCom where I was Senior Graphic Designer for the Mass Markets team. You will appreciate my attention to detail and professional attitude that I attribute to my corporate work experience. I hope to work with you! Andy Areas of focus and self-evaluation I regard myself as an intuitive cartoonist, able to meet a client's expectations with minimal instruction. I'm very sensitive to critical deadlines where timing is an issue. My clients find that my ability to present "next to finished" artwork, even in the conceptual stage, very helpful and refreshing. I work directly from within my software of choice and skip the "pencil rough" stage altogether. If I were to choose a specialty, it would be cartoon illustration, but as you will see my "cartoony" style transfers successfully even into my more "corporate", commercial designs. I've been told that I'm easy to work with and very communicative. We'll work TOGETHER to tackle your design challenge and you will find that I'm a team player ... not your typical "loner" artsy type.

He also brings a sense of trust and authority... like someone solid and handy you would call on for help. Wyatt's rugged Dad and guy next door quality gives a sense of home town comfort that everything will be alright. But if the chips are turned and the law needs to be laid down, the weather can quickly change to "this is how things are".
