GRAPHIC DESIGN SERVICES
BOOK COVER DESIGN SERVICES

Whether you need graphic services such as book cover designs, brochures, logos,T-shirts, and other promotional material, or you want something really special - illustrations to knock your customers socks off, I have the varied skills and mastery to help you stand-out from your competitors. My forty plus years of professional art services gives me an advantage over my competitors - I know how to do, do it right, and do it fast.

My fees range from $30 - $70 an hour depending on what you need and what type of rights to reproduction you want. I illustrate for specific or limited rights to reproduction, work for hire (all rights to reproduction), and royalties with advance payments. I do not work for speculation.

My illustrations combine traditional and digital methods. I illustrate on paper, board, canvas, watercolor, and oils, and then digitally enhance, float, embellish, etc. . . . I also work direct digitally for Graphic Designs and Graphic Illustrations. I work with Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Draw, and Adobe GoLive.

ILLUSTRATION HISTORY
My list of noted clientele includes 20th Century Fox, Sirius Software, and Black Bear Diner. I've also won international awards for my T-shirt illustrations.

I've been professionally illustrating for over forty years. While attending junior college I began illustrating science museum exhibits and planetarium shows at Sierra College, California. I soon became the art director and had numerous responsibilities. I coordinated the creation and implementation of planetarium slide shows; I assisted with upgrading the Science Center and Museum natural history exhibits; I supervised part-time student staff in the creation of the planetarium shows; and I researched science and natural history subjects to create planetarium shows and exhibits for the Center.

I later transferred to U.C. Davis to complete my fine art studies. While attending U.C. Davis I became director for the U.C. Davis Recreation Services Publicity Department where I supervised student staff in creating publicity materials and class schedules for the Recreation Services Department. Also during my time at Davis I began illustrating computer game covers for Sirius Software. I later added additional computer game companies to my list of clientele. I later expanded my genre to include logos, posters, simple patent drawings, and museum exhibits.

In 1997 my husband and I began screen printing T-shirts which later grew to include embroidery and various imprintable products. I was the graphic artist, illustrator, seperator, and part time printer. As the business expanded we also offered limited web development, a retail catalog service, and on-demand warehousing to our biggest client.
