I work with clients that have various applications for my illustrations. Most tend to be online/video or in game, so I still only see the work on screen.
But I was pleasantly surprised to get a sample packet in the mail from a Christmas project I helped NorthPoint Ministries with! Nice printed coloring books celebrating the birth of Jesus.
The Art Director had a great vision for something other than the typical manger scene. The kids ministry wanted something different so we went with more of a camel point of view. The kids ministry and creative staff do amazing productions, so it was exciting to work with them on this. Originally I was only doing a few illustrations, but it quickly changed when the Project Manager and Art Director liked the work so much and wanted me to do the entire layout. On a normal project, I would just pass along the files, so it was very fun to work the entire book from start to finish. Graphic design is something I enjoy. Illustration is something I’m passionate about. So it was double the fun. The staff there made is really easy for me to explore the space, but stay in their design standards. From the first sketch to the final production output I was able to help bring a new look to an old story.
As much as I love seeing the work put to good use, it is even mo’ bettah to get samples in hand, with a super nice note!
If you need design, production and hopefully illustration help, don’t hesitate to ask me how I can help!
