Testimonials

Professionalism & Quality Guaranteed
  • “Thinking of employing an illustrator?
    Then, look no further than the marvellous Paul Ikin!”

    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 focused. 

    – Heather Ruth Laurie

  • “Pure talent!”

    We engaged Paul at the early stages of our creative endeavour and  from the initial meeting, he was able to take our conceptual character ideas and transform them into reality. Pure talent !If your looking for an illustrator that listens, willing to guide you through the process and delivers on time and on budget- Paul is your man!

    – Kelly Heath
    Managing Director – Numbat & Friends

  • “Very helpful when it comes to guiding first timers.”

    “Paul is extremely professional and so talented, he was able to bring my characters to life that truly depicted my requests and exceeded my expectations. Paul is a great listener and very helpful when it comes to guiding first timers through the normal processes of the self-publishing world. Truly impressed!”

    Author of Jimry Whippet and the School Bully

  • “I got Lucky!”

    Earlier this year I engaged Paul Ikin to illustrate a children’s book. I chose his name at random from the Internet. I got lucky! Paul is very talented and professional and a delight to work with. His illustrations for my book were just right and have been much admired.

  • “The books are the embodiment of what I had visioned.”

    Throughout the process of creating the books, I have benefited from Paul’s technical and publishing knowledge. He has provided options and advice in terms of design, printing, and business development. Using his knowledge and abilities has given my books the best possible chance of success and also, perhaps more importantly, the books are the embodiment of what I had visioned.

  • “Good fortune!”

    It was my good fortune to be recommended the illustration services of Paul Ikin who illustrated my children’s book ‘Chiwawa Rock’ 
    I am looking forward to working with Paul in the near future.
