“Thank you, Joana Miranda, for creating our logo illustration. It has become a true door opener to new business. It’s charm, humor and whimsy speak so accurately to our brand. Working with you was a delight. You listened and produced exactly what we had in our mind’s eye and then gave it an extra punch. I can’t wait to work with you again.” – Deb [event planner website]
“Working with Joana to design a custom illustration for my blog was a truly rewarding experience. Joana took the idea I had in my mind and, with gentle suggestions so it would look suitable for the measurements of a blog header, she created an image better than I originally hoped. Very cute and stylish. Would highly recommend!” – Celeste [mommy blog]
“I ordered a customized illustration and the final illustration was very beautiful. I am very satisfied with the work process as well. The owner has real good taste and was very kind and responsive. I definitely recommend to work with the owner. I would like to work with her again! Thank you so much!!” – Mariko [maternity website]
“Wonderful! Thank you for sharing your talent and time with us, Joana. This is truly special.” – Chris [custom family holiday portrait]
“WOW! Amazing. So well done and clever. I LOVE it. If you’re not being hounded by publications I have no idea why not.” – Dietrich [custom couples portrait]

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
* After discussing the parameters of your project, I will work up a customized price estimate as well as the expected time frame for completion. Generally, custom illustrations take between 1-2 weeks to complete.
* I will communicate with you along the way providing you with a rough pencil sketch for your review. I allow up to 2 revisions to the sketch before proceeding to the final inked illustration.
IMPORTANT: Revisions are tweaks to the illustration NOT changes in the entire concept.
* I will discuss color palettes with you before proceeding to the final colored cartoon illustration. I color using watercolor pencils and markers, or – for black and white illustrations – India ink washes.
* Illustrations are COPYRIGHTED to me and intended for your personal use only (i.e. unique gift, greeting card for family/friends, profile picture on Social Media or on a personal blog or forum). Commercial use of the cartoon (such as mascot/advertising logo, business letterhead, or business website) will incur an additional fee.
