Scripture Pictures

by Ariel Johnson
(Ooltewah, TN, USA)

I made this picture for a friend whose father had passed away from cancer.

I made this picture for a friend whose father had passed away from cancer.
I drew this
Here is a rough skecth of a Christmas picture I made just last year! This next photo is the finished product :)
See how I can make my sketches come to life? :)

Inspired by the works of Disney and other family-related animations, I enjoy drawing fun-loving cartoons that are focused on spreading the love of God and His glorious truth! I call them "Scripture Pictures" :)

My process is tedious, but well worth it! I hand sketch the ideas on paper and then scan the rough drafts onto my computer, where I ink, color, and shade the entire picture until it practically comes to life! I use a basic "Bamboo Artist Tablet" to make it all possible.

Now, to be perfectly honest, I am not an "experienced illustrator." I have never attended an art school, nor have I ever contributed my work to other writers in the past. If an impressive degree is what you're expecting, then I stand before you with empty hands. I'm not here as a "Somebody," and I'm not here to BECOME a "Somebody." God has given me the gift of creating art, and nothing brings me greater joy than to spread His love through it :)

I may appear bold with my words, but they come from my heart. And my heart, as well as my God, is truly all that I am.

Thank you for your attention and time, dear Writer, and God bless you on your search. <3

I am a creative, hard-working and spunky young woman. I've been drawing since I was young and selling art since I was thirteen. I have a passion for art; my soul aches when I cannot draw or sketch.

Personal Information:

I am a Baptist preacher's daughter. I am a graduate of Word Of Life Bible Institute and currently attending another Christian college. I love fantasy, our merciful Lord Jesus, and creative thinking.


Experience:

--Local art showings and sales.
--Running a small business selling my art online.
--I've provided concept art for four children's books.

Styles:

My style is varied (as you will see in my portfolio), but it is often called "Whimsical." I tend to focus on details and produce a lot of art at once.

Media:

--I tend to work in pen and ink, including some brush work and ink washes.
--I have also produced pieces in pencil, colored pencil, and watercolor.

Rates:

I am open for negotiation on prices.

Pre-Hiring:

I am willing to produce some basic sketches of some of the concepts an author would want and submit them through email.

I have some college and formal training and for many years have taken consignment work: painting children at play, portraits of people and pets.

I have illustrated three Christian children's books for self publishing authors.

"Why Did God Make the Pomegranates?" by author Teresa Love.

God Honoring Art


Hello! My name is Breana. I can do several types of art, including cartoon type drawings (such as the kind found in children's story books), acrylic paintings, black and white pencil drawings, colored pencil drawings, pen sketches, charcoal sketches, and pencil sketches. I also do realistic still life very well.

My favorite medium to work with is acrylic paints. I use light and shadow to bring out dimensions in my work. I enjoy creating whimsical scenes. I can also create, fun, bold, colorful pictures and realistic still-life.

Previous experience includes illustrating "The Greatest Treasure" and art on magazine covers.

I will not do illustrations for any book that is against my morals. I will only use my artwork for projects that honor God.

My rates are budget-friendly, and my prices are negotiable on a project-to-project basis.

If you are considering using her to illustrate a picture book, email Breana.

Artist on fire for Jesus

by Lisa Marie Mueller
(Grand Falls, Newfoundland, Canada)

Adventures In The Forest

Adventures In The Forest

Artist on fire for Jesus

Lisa Mueller has an extensive background in teaching visual arts as well as plenty of experience through her own life as a self-employed artist.

Lisa started four years of her formal education through a renowned Newfoundland artist, Christopher Pete. She later applied and was accepted into the Ontario College of Art and Design and finished her education at Memorial University of Newfoundland in Corner Brook. She has been recognized as a water-colourist, selling several of her paintings to the Canadian government as well as showcasing her work in galleries across Newfoundland.


She is also known for her sculpture work and has received much publicity through the eight foot tree carving of a pulp and paper mill-worker that she was commissioned to do for the city of Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Lisa has several qualifications which can offer the kind of experience and training that is beneficial to others.

While established in Peterborough Ontario, she began a large art gallery called Mueller’s Unit 8 on 280 Perry Street which soon became an experience of a life time as she was able to work along side many talented artists. She draws her inspiration from her faith in Jesus.

Artist Statement

Should I call myself an artist? What does it mean to be an artist? Does it mean that I paint? That I draw? That I create? Is it a lifestyle? A way of thinking? A trend? A hobby? Maybe it is all of the above. What I truly am is a silly girl, one my friends say has more imagination than common sense at times. I am a girl who gets distracted by thought after thought, and I can lose myself in every aspect of my surroundings. I dream big and sometimes forget to think out all the little steps to get to where I want to go. I want to conquer everything, every idea, every dream, every exploration.

I adore every aspect of painting: the feel of a paintbrush between my fingers, the fresh smell of my watercolors, the crispness of a new canvas or paper, my pencil crayons, thousands of colors to express any moment, thought, feeling, the excitement of being inspired. All these things make up who I am and what I crave.

Not much makes me happier than having the opportunity to interact with others by creating something that is special to them. A small glimpse into the window of another’s life can show so much. It’s truly amazing to paint a precious moment in a child’s life and have it recorded for a parent to re-live each day. This is what makes me happy. This is my life.

I love people. To me, we are all family, and I feel blessed to have the chance to offer a painting, a moment, an experience that others can cherish for always. I was born with the gift to draw and paint, and it is exactly that - a gift! A gift from God, my father, my all. God has blessed my life in more ways than I even realize. I have moments where I take it for granted or even abuse it. Everything I have, everything I am, every talent, everything good, pure and beautiful is because of Him. I feel that it is my duty, my calling, my responsibility to share with you the gifts He has enriched my life with.

With much love,
Lisa xo

Authors, Share Your Book with Millions of Readers


I have been drawing, designing and creating since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I come from a family endowed with artists, writers, and composers, many whom have graced the pages of American history. I have illustrated over 30 books for children and educators, including an early reader's emergent series and I am the author of two books.

I began my publishing career in 1975, illustrating for Christian organizations and denominations. My work has been included in many children's magazines and ezines.

As a professional illustrator, I have entertained at numerous schools, libraries, festivals and museums. I am a proud member of The Society of Children's Book Writer's and Illustrators. I am an honors graduate of The Art Institute of Dallas, TX, where I earned a degree in Graphic Design. I am also an accomplished free-lance photographer, portrait artist and a member of The American Society of Portrait Artists.

My work has been shown world wide and commissioned by churches, businesses and foreign dignitaries. I work with many self-published authors and my goal is to help them achieve their dream of seeing their books illustrated and published. Contact Bonnie Everett-Hawkes!

Aloha Bonnie!

The Old Nene Book of Hawaiian Nursery Rhymes, the book you illustrated so beautifully for me, is now for sale on the British Online Catalogue of the Blackwell Bookstore. I guess the combination of artistry and lyrics (because they can be sung, after all) has attracted people all over the world.

Mahalo nui loa for doing such a superb job! I'm looking forward to working together on our next project!

Rodney Looks GREAT, Doesn't He?
by: Judy Caughron Byers

Wow, Bonnie! Rodney really looks GREAT! Now, all we need is for a few hundred kids to fall in love with him, as you and I did, and pass the word along.

Rodney was only a figment of my very vivid imagination until I introduced him to Bonnie Everett-Hawkes. She captured the essence of him and shortly sent me proofs. Her "Rodney" illustrations brought my story to life. I will be forever grateful to her and for her.

Bonnie has the heart of an angel. She is extremely easy to work with, and she KNOWS what she is doing. She makes illustration seem effortless. Her work is impeccable.

She is currently working on another project with me called "I Am Special." This is a loving children's book, written in rhyme. It was inspired by Cody, my nephew, who unfortunately suffers from Down's Syndrome.

"Rodney Raises A Family" is available at Lulu.

Monica Captured the Vision
by: Pat Holt

I had related the story, "The Long Dark Scary Night," to children for years to help them overcome their fear of the dark.

But I had no pictures and no artist. Still, I believed the story deserved an experienced artist of superior quality and vision.

Enter: Monica Minto! Monica was highly recommended to me by a publisher. I was somewhat skeptical but contacted her through e-mail. She responded promptly, with interest and a caring attitude. That was encouraging, but would she capture the vision, the emotion of the book?

YES! Monica took that little story that meant so much to me, and, with her unique God-given talent, created a short story masterpiece!

I'm thrilled. Her artistry is unparalleled. Just take a look at her drawings, and you'll know exactly what I mean.

Would I use her again? YES! Not only is her ability superior, but she is easy to work with, her prices are more than fair, and she cares about you as an author and the book you are producing together.

GO FOR IT MONICA!
by: Gordon Eaton, Author

Monica is a gem of an Illustrator! She has the rare faculty of fitting her drawings into the text, bringing it alive before your very own eyes.

A professional illustator of many years remarked to me that he was very impressed with the fine, exquisite details of her work.

Monica is a calm person and easy to work with, even under the most trying circumstances.

She will soon be illustrating my second children's book for the reasons given above.

Exceptional Illustrator
by: Kim Kuykendoll

It was truly a wonderful blessing working with Monica. She was very friendly and graciously willing to work with me on my children's novel. She helped when the pressure was on to get the illustrations ready. When I saw the illustrations that she was thinking conjuring, I was in awe.

Once I recieved the finished product,they were fantastic! Her illustrations were the perfect complement to the novel. I am greatly appreciative to Monica for her hard work, cooperation, and beautiful Illustration.

Sincerely,
Kim Kuykendoll

Awesome Illustrator
by: Marie Dockery

Monica Minto is one of the most talented illustrators I have had the pleasure to work with.

She responded quickly to my cry for help in illustrating my book, "The Three Billy Goats Gruff Find Jesus and The Three Little Souls." I told her simply what I wanted, and she immediately went to work and drew some amazing pen and pencil drawings.

The illustrations were not only beautiful and detailed but exactly what I wanted to make the story come alive. She made modifications as I requested in a very short time.

I have great appreciation for her for the graphics she supplied quickly and efficiently.

Sincerely,
Marie
