I am an illustrator/designer/art director with 30 years experience in illustration
and design. My career has spanned retail, advertising, book illustration
and design, logo and character development, packaging design,
editorial illustration, and children’s book development and illustration.

I view every project from its own unique set of parameters
whether it is the design and layout of an ad for a corporation
to the illustration and design of a children’s book. I believe
my experience in client interaction, presentation, and client
relations combined with my ability to articulate through
design and illustration makes me a valuable asset.

Clients have included Mervyn’s, Breuner’s Home Furnishings,
Simon and Schuster, Northrup King, Good Morning Teacher
Publishing, Neely Publishing, San Francisco SPCA, Lake
Educational Books, Saddleback Books, and more.

I am adept with Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign as well as
traditional media, including watercolor, acrylics, pen and ink,
colored pencil, oils and mixed media. I also have experience in
direction and setting up photo shoots.

I have illustrated over 200 books, designed countless ads . Please check

please call https://www.twine.fm/signin, or email me at https://www.twine.fm/signin .
I think you will find me easy to work with, and committed to your deadlines.
I have worked with individuals and small to large firms from coast to coast.

Thank you,
Jim Balkovek
