“You won’t find a better illustrator, designer and artist than Ellysia!
After she was recommended to me, I approached Ellysia to illustrate my first published book. I didn’t really have any set idea of what I wanted, and so I gave her a fairly ambiguous brief and creative freedom to put together something that fitted the subject matter. To say I am amazed with the result is an understatement!
Ellysia produced rough sketches of a diverse range of ideas in a high quality and super speedy manner, she then went on to create amazing “tidied up” draft versions before flooding them with colour and charisma. She produced my artwork in a print ready format without me even asking, and was understanding, supportive and innovative from start to finish (even when faced with my indecisiveness and lack of artistic vision!) The whole process of creating a front and back cover and internal doodles was complete in a matter of days, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the final result. If you ever need artwork, design or simply a creative eye, I urge you to get in touch with Ellysia. I am blown away, lost for words and can’t recommend her highly enough.
I look forward to working with her on any future publications!”
