From the "Art" of Texas: illustration for children's books, novels, comics, and more!

My artwork is very eclectic. I am constantly trying new innovative techniques and a wide range of styles.

I primarily work with digital mediums - Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop - but I also use traditional means: charcoal, acrylics, watercolors, etc.

My prices are very reasonable, and they generally depend on the project at hand.

I am a freelance illustrator. An artist inspires others to dream and to push towards their dreams; my dream is to become a great artist.

I like for my illustrations to provide an idea, a short story that will enrich the storytelling.

I can work in any media, from pencils, charcoals, inks, watercolors, acrylics, pastels, digital, and photography. I can also sculpt.

I am a self taught photomanipulator and digital illustrator.

I have worked on three children's books (two of which have been published), local magazine illustrations and a convention only comic book. I have also created logos and cartoons for websites and blogs.

I can work in many styles, like cartoons, caricatures, comics, manga, portraits etc.

If you want a free sample of your idea, send me a message and I can work on it within 24 hours of confirmation of receipt.

Imaginative Illustration

Imaginative Illustrator

Hi! My name is Angela Montgomery, and I am an illustrator, always willing to express words through pictures.

In May, 2009, I graduated with a BFA in Illustration from the University of Arizona. I illustrated my own text-less narrative, and a few art books, which you may feel free to look at on my web site.

I am proficient in a variety of media, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, oils, watercolors, acrylics, and ink. I am versatile, and my style adapts to any given project. However, inspiration from pop-culture, toys, animation, and the playfulness of children are encompassed in my current work.

I am willing to be negotiable and to do sample sketches.

E-mail Angela.

Children Are Part of the Landscape!

Rex - Children's Book Illustrator


I am a free-lance artist/illustrator who specializes in watercolors, pastels, pen & ink and pencil. I am proficient in, but not limited to, landscapes. I have also worked as a commercial artist.

I developed an interest in children's book illustrations by watching my five grandchildren grow and sharing their love of picture books. I have sketched cartoon characters with them over the years and found this to be a great way of expressing myself. My renditions are colorful and vibrant, which is how I feel children's books should be.

I am basically self-taught, although I did learn from Tom Lea as a youngster and took courses from The Art Institute and Famous Artists, plus some classes in college.

I am presently working on my own children's book, for which the illustrations are complete. The text is a work-in-progress.

I would love to chat with an aspiring author and share ideas. Illustrating a picture book for children would be a dream come true for me. I feel that I can contribute enthusiasm and creativity to your project.

As far as my fees are concerned, it would strictly be a matter of how much detail the author desires; that directly relates to the time required to complete the project. I would not charge an hourly fee but instead would quote an "up-front" price based on how many illustrations are agreed upon, giving me an idea of how much time I would need.

I would be happy to provide a sample illustration for consideration and review for the author's approval.

Pencil sketch, then color

by Markie Paxton
(Phoenix, Az)

Everything starts with a simple sketch, and I love new starts!!

I generally begin with a pencil illustration and then color and finish it in GIMP (the GNU Image Manipulation Program).

I am currently working on 2 children's books and have self-published 2 kid books of my own. I seem to be able to depict anything from the simplest to the anatomical.

While fees generally start at $50 per page, this is negotiable. I'm quick, adaptable and am stuck at age 6 in my head. With email, sketches can be flying all over the place until we agree on the project development!

I look forward to working with you. Contact me by email at markiepaxton@rocketmail.com.

Children's Illustrations and Vignettes by Tara Case


(Copperas Cove, Texas, United States)

In high school, I had a very professional and knowledgeable art teacher who taught me how to put together an effective portfolio.

I'm currently working on my degree in art. I've been drawing and painting ever since I can remember.

Now that I'm older, it's really easy for me to see who and what has inspired me. Growing up with three sisters, my art tends to be very feminine and ethereal. However, since I've had my son, my eyes have also been opened to the curious world of boy-dom.

I love drawing people, and most of all children.

My goal is always to capture the heart and existence of whomever it may be I'm drawing I love watercolor. It lends itself very well to my style. I'm also very accomplished in other mediums as well: graphite, acrylic, oil, batik, charcoal, conte, and others.

I'm very open to suggestions and completely interested in working with other people's ideas and thoughts. I'm always looking to better my work.
