Jim creates watercolor, acrylic and pencil illustrations in both simple and complex styles...which are priced accordingly. Orders for sample illustrations and preliminary character development sketches are invited... with prices to allow you to see what you're getting before committing to a total project.
When I work with commercial publishers, I often think how little creative input the author has, in comparison to the creative synergy of a self-publishing author and a hand-selected illustrator. Please take a look at my website, Jim Harris Illustrator
, for more examples of my book illustrations. If you would like to talk further about your project, please email me
I would be happy to hear from you.
