Testimonials from my Clients

Satisfaction Guaranteed
  • Thinking of employing an illustrator?  Then, look no further than the marvellous Paul Ikin!

    People can’t help but pick up my book, smiling as they do and saying, “Beautiful.”; “Wow!”; “Great cover”.  It’s a lovely feeling and I’m proud to watch their faces and listen to their pleasure.  Then they weigh the edition in their hands and flick through the pages, favourably commenting on the layout and cute in-text motifs sprinkled throughout.  Each time this happens I think how glad I am I decided to employ Paul as my illustrator.

    Paul’s artistic skills, combined with his professional attitude and easy good humour, have been considerable contributing factors to the success of my publication.  He was a wonderful collaborator in this artistic pursuit.

    He listened and respected my ideas and brought an enthusiasm and unflappable charm to the project which assisted with nerves and helped keep me focussed.

    During the days just prior to publication whilst viewing the final draft of the book, my printer made the comment, “If only every illustrator was as thorough as Paul, mine would be a much easier job!”  Need I say more?

    Paul is a professional.  He cares and respects the artistic pursuit and the clients he works with.  This is his secret; the secret to providing an up-to-date commercially successful service.  Remember, success rubs off.
