My rates might be higher than some but they are certainly less than others but I’m always willing to do my best to work within a clients budget. When you hire me, you are getting twenty years of experience and professionalism with a proven track record of reliability, satisfied clients and a guarantee of quality work.

DEADLINES: Do you need it overnight or do we have three weeks to get it done?
- COLOR: Is it in color or black and white?
- USAGE: Will it be on the cover, a full page interior or just a spot? Is it a book? Magazine? Greeting Card? Advertisement? Company Logo? Character Design?
