Cartoons add a dimension of fun and relatability to your book or presentation. They help lighten a dry or difficult topic and give visual (not  to mention comic) relief to long text. And studies show that simply by adding visuals to text, you increase memory retention by 40%

art of impact bookI draw in a New Yorker Magazine style that lends wit and sophistication to your words. And of course, having cartoons in your book skyrockets the chance of its actually getting read, and remembered.

I read your text cover to cover, “get” the concept and suggest a whole range of funny ways to visualize your ideas. Or I can execute your own cartoon ideas. What I like best is collaborating with you to create something that communicates greater than the sum of its parts. And with my years of experience as a copywriter and marketer, I can help ensure our combined efforts get the point across with impact. I’ll even show you how you can share your cartoons as social memes to help spread your ideas and market your book.

Book Illustration & Collaboration packages start at $1500 and up* and include a range of concepts, a collaborative pencil stage for each “winning” idea, full execution in B&W, color or both and hi-res digital files for use online or in print.  I can also execute individual cartoon ideas for ads, presentations or newsletters, and create shareable image memes to spread your message.  A full range of licensing possibilities are available, from single-use to unlimited, to suit your needs and budget.
