My name is Mariano Mercado and I am a freelance illustrator. I am writing to request that you review my work and consider me for an illustration assignment. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Illustration from Northern Illinois University and a master’s degree in Education from National-Louis University. I currently teach art in Elgin, Illinois. Over the past twenty years as a freelance artist, I have been commissioned to paint landscapes, portraits and caricatures for private clients. My work has been displayed in art fairs throughout Illinois and in a number of gallery shows. I have illustrated several children’s books, including one I authored myself. Many of my illustrations reflect my Hispanic heritage. I love to express distinct human emotions through my illustrations, and I can design both realistic images and creative caricatures. My work combines traditional illustration methods and digital media. I employ technology and software like Photoshop CS5 and Corel Painter 11 to enhance my original illustrations.
