Seuss-ish Jack & The Beanstalk Illustrations
Aug 2011 - Dec 2011
I'd strongly recommend Sebastian - skilled in a variety of styles, but especially for cartoon and comic-style work where character is important. I'm trying to figure out what my next book will be so I can hire him again myself...
Sebastian is exceptionally talented. Most important to me, he was willing to work through the book with me collaboratively and was very open to feedback, considering all ideas, but also being honest about which seemed best to him. He and I were a strong team, and I think the product is better for it. While this may seem simple, it showed that he has both pride in his work, but ALSO a willingness to learn and consider other ideas, which gave us great flexibility.
Sebastian really demonstrated that he CARED about the final product, and he constantly surprised me with exceptional work and unexpected, creative ideas to make the illustrations both beautiful and fun to look at many times over. He added a great deal of character to the book and was always asking, "what can we do to make this better?" He also saw the project through to completion, even with some design hiccups near the end of the process - he stuck with it, even after the final payment had been submitted. Like his style? Hire him.
