    Create a simple, clear illustration of an industry (we"ll provide the starting visuals, arrows, copy, etc) that is oversaturated with too much busy work, time-wasting, and other nonsense—which our client is going to clean up with pending product launch. Can"t get into specifics yet, just looking for potential resources for EPS or AI file that we can use as an educational element in video, ppt, etc. Might also have someone do additional "accent" illustrations in same style, that we can animate in video project. For forecasting purposes, let"s say there are 7-8 main elements (such as factory, vendor, customer, etc., with various arrows and such connecting them. Current client drawing fills up a 4" x 6" wipe erase board. What I want to know now is:- Ballpark on time to create something like this- Any samples of similar workFYI, illustration could be like old UPS campaign, or "The Story Of Stuff" video on YouTube, or some other style of illustration that looks like it could"ve been drawn on a wipe-erase board.

    Hi there,My name is Amber and I"m looking to commission a cartoonist/artist to draw/design an image I want turned into body art. The picture needs only to be large enough that a tattoo artist in Western Australia could copy it easily and accurately. I am willing to negotiate part payment on you taking the job on and the rest on the completed image I am satisfied with. I would expect a series of drafts revised over time until the final is agreed upon, but you are free to take your time (ie no specific deadline). If you have a portfolio/examples of your work you would like to send me prior to me selecting my freelancer I"d be pleased to review before initial payment.If you complete the job successfully I will also be happy for you to provide my details and a copy of the image in your future portfolios.If you are interested please email me for a full description of the image I have in mind. It is not particularly complex (he"s a cartoon style monkey, facing away from the viewer but grinning wickedly over his left shoulder. Behind his back he holds a bunch of opium poppies). To give you an idea of context (this can be helpful for some artists) this little monkey is the proverbial "monkey on ones back", and is representative of the ego but I would like him to be depicted as more cheeky/wicked than evil, if that makes sense?It would wind up being a right shoulder image of small to medium size (as far as tattoos go), maybe 7cm high ?Evidently this is a personal and meaningful project to me (bodyart usually is, right?) however, I will endeavor not to drive you crazy while I try to get the image in my minds eye to match up with the one on your page.Please contact me if you feel this job is for you...Thanks

    I was wandering if you could design a band t-shirt for me. The band is called Danger Dragon and is in the same theme as Poison, Def Leppard, Van Halen and Steel Panther. Our thoughts were for a woman in a bikini riding a dragon between a large set of Steel angel wings and Danger Dragon in neon red text. The design needs to be able to go onto a black and a white shirt. Preferably 3 to 4 colours. But also maybe a full colour option.

Well... I was a Soldier. Not much related to the art world on the surface. But it gave me a great work ethic, self-motivation, and apparently I was trust-worthy enough to get a Top Secret Clearance at one point. I'd imagine you'd want to hire an artist that has proven that they can keep a project under-wraps if needed, right?
