Service Description

My FAQ inside my portfolio contains a lot of information about my working method, check it out: I'm sure it will be useful!

My services focus mainly on illustration, expecially for children books, both in traditional print and electronic media.

I also offer additional services like typesetting/lettering, preparation of the book for print, etc.

I'm very precise about schedules and deadlines, I'm used to fix and correct my sketches according to the client's requests.

I usually answer in 24-48 hours to e-mails in working days, but please allow 3-4 days or more before you worry.
Exceptions will be communicated in advance to the Client.

The schedules and deadline I propose are always "safe esteems": I never give false deadlines I'm forced to break. These timelines can be shortened if there will be fewer revisions than expected, of course.

I will provide hi-quality files, ready for printing machines (any resolution, CMYK color) in any size you require. Else, if the work is for digital means (ex.: websites, e-books, etc.) I can provide file in optimized formats as well as top-quality, full resolution versions (.JPG, .PSD, .GIF and many others - in RGB color).

I work directly in digital (no quality loss due to scan) with a Wacom Cintiq 24"HD.

I have no problems in signing and accepting Non Disclosures Agreements (NDA) and to release every commercial right.

All samples in my portfolio are of my own production and used with permission of clients!

I don't do 3D art or vector.
