My name is Tara O'Connor. I'm a recent graduate of Marywood University. I earned my degree in Art Education and obtained a minor in Illustration.

I've been drawing since I can remember, and recently I've been working on commission for those who are interested in my work. I also work on my own personal projects, such as graphic novels and mini comics. I've also done a cover illustration for a local newspaper in my college town.

My style is very comic influenced, but it has some realistic qualities. I can always go the extra mile to make it a bit more cartoony or a bit more realistic, based on the clientele. I usually work with brush pens, and I'm a fan of black and white art, but I am more than willing to add color to the mix.

Fees are negotiable and dependent on projects, and I'd be more than willing to produce sample sketches.

Even though it's likely that most our communication will take place through the internet, I like to keep in close contact with my clients so that they are supremely satisfied with their choice!

In addition to the sample I've provided (a local entertainment newspaper cover) I have a site where my artwork can be found: look for Ginger Curls.

You can contact me by e-mail:

Thank you very much for looking!

Comical, friendly, pictures that make you smile

My name is Nisha. I love making people laugh, which is why, you might notice, that most of my drawings have a funny side to them.

My style involves hand-drawn pencil and paper art, which is then inked and scanned. Most of it is thus in black and white. I believe this is what I am best at.

There wouldn't be any relevant schooling that I could mention as I am a self taught artist and it is only my love for drawing that makes me do more and more of it. As for experience, I have done pictures for the calendar of an ad agency in Dubai (one picture for each month for 2015 and 2016. The colouring for this was done by the designers at the agency). Beyond that, my work has mostly been personal - doing pictures for my own pleasure and to please others.

Pictures aid the reader in grasping, imagining, and understanding the story to its fullest. Being a book-lover myself, I can tell you about many stories and books that I remember only because of their wonderful pictures. In fact, one of the factors I look at while choosing storybooks for my children is their pictures. I have often noticed my son studying the pictures in the storybook as I read it out to him, so, obviously, it makes a lot of difference.

I would be willing to do a few sample sketches for the client if it would help him understand my work better.

(psst... I also do English editing!)
