Hello, I have two roles, First, I am an aspiring music producer actively selling beats online and offline under the name BooqBeatz. My beats are available as both lease and exclusive sales.

SoundCloud: @booqbeatz Beatstars, facebook: /booqbeatz Second, I am a Graphic Design Student in Chicago attempting to build up a network as well as a portfolio. I have created quite a few digital designs including, flyers, business cards, album covers, logos, banners, photo edits, ect. I would be happy to work with anyone who is willing to work with me as well. Instagram: @perspectic_overseer officiallybooqbeatz@gmail.com

I'm a traditional #oilpainter and #printmaker focusing on #realism, #portraiture, and #figurative work. I recently graduated with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I am an art instructor at a private art school. I exhibit my work around the Chicagoland area.

I am a Graphic Designer & Illustrator based out of Chicago. My obsession with design and image has been life long, from the crayons and coloring books of my childhood to digital pen tablets and design software of my current work. Expressing myself artistically is central to who I am and that form of expression is constantly evolving. Furthering my education in design is an ongoing practice for me and I am forever fine tuning my skills personally and professionally. As a self-starter, multitasking several projects and deadlines comes naturally to me and I thrive in energetic, creative environments. It is very inspiring for me to collaborate with fellow artists and I find it easy to communicate seamlessly within a large and diverse group. I'm drawn to the aesthetic of 60s psychedelia, the color palette of the desert, the timelessness of classic rock, pop art, and vintage movie posters.

I'm a meticulous, inspired young artist/architect, always open to freelance work in the fields of architecture, art, and design where I can apply my creative and technical skillsets and satisfy my passions for artistic detail and design innovation. sartori.michaelene@gmail.com

"The World is your canvas, you are the medium. Your life is your art, create your masterpiece."

I am creative designer graduate from central saint martins art and college and study in School of Art Institute of Chicago now. I hold the idea about ‘The responsibility of designers is to create more possibility for the world. They have to break the rules and cross borders, transforming the impossible into the possible.’

About illustrators

An illustrator is a visual artist who creates drawings and illustrations for use in advertisements, books, magazines, packaging, greetings cards, clothing design and newspapers. The possibilities for your business are endless - illustrations are the perfect finishing touch to your graphic design, while illustrated infographics are proven to be far more engaging than plain text. Plus, illustration has the benefit that the only thing limiting you is your imagination - if you want a dragon you can have a dragon.

The types of work illustrators are hired for is extremely varied. Illustrators are hired for projects ranging from editorial, fashion, storyboard, technical and book illustration. Although illustrators are flexible in the kinds of projects they take on, they usually specialise in a particular style. These include traditional styles like pencils, pens, watercolour and pastels, as well as digital art made using software such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Often, a project might require both, with sketches first drawn up by hand and colouring then completed digitally.

On Twine, you'll find talented professional illustrators with a wide variety of experience in a range of industries and mediums. So whether you want a sketch for your next fashion collection or a cover for your new novel, you can find illustrators to make it happen on Twine.
