I pride myself on attention to detail, and on offering a friendly and reliable service, whatever the commission.
Area Covered: Nationwide (UK)
Summary: In addition to a range of private commissions completed over the last few years, I have illustrated a full-colour children\'s history book, \'An Illustrated History of 1066\', a three-stage programme for teaching reading skills to children with dyslexia (for each of these, I was also responsible for the book design, achieved with the use of Adobe InDesign and Photoshop), developed a character for use as a Norfolk-based business\' corporate identity, and have produced a number of cover illustrations for a children\'s publisher/book packager.
Job Title: Humorous children's book illustration/cartoon
Description: Series of six full-colour 8 x 10" illustrations to accompany a short story - supplied in digital and original watercolour format - depicting the client's partner and partner's dog in a humorous/cartoon style. (All preparatory sketching and re-drafting work, as necessary, and carriage costs included in the original bid fee.)
Amanda did an absolute phenomenal job translating my children's story into images. She was a wonderful collaborator adding her own wonderful style and ideas while absolutely SUPERBLY communicating with me every step of the way. I wish I could train my own staff to communicate this efficiently and exactly.
Amanda is a true artist. Her work is done by hand and she goes through several drafts for approval. I am absolutely blown away by her skill. Timeliness was absolutely fantastic as well. Highly recommend!
