Each illustrator is responsible for setting the price that makes the most sense to them in fair compensation for their expertise, materials, and time.

Sara Marie (Sublime Sip Studio)

I used to want my work to bring forth some sort of profound question, but after many experiences and being faced with new anxieties, I returned to a more authentic relationship with my work. Painting became about living in a moment of peace. Both my writing and my artwork have the same purpose: my true intention for my work is not to be one of questioning or some deeper meaning, it is to provide a moment of peace and joy to my audience.

A moment to escape reality and just be.

~ Sara Marie

Ivy Giddens

I’m an illustrator, graphic designer, and character designer with over 15 years of artistic experience.

My main point of interest is visual storytelling, an interest first sparked by Brett Helquist’s work for Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events; something that brought the idea of illustration to the forefront of my world.

Kevin Lewis

Kevin “Scene” Lewis creates drawings, paintings, murals, and mixed media artworks.

Born in Youngstown, Ohio but raised in the tidewater area of southeastern Virginia. He was always considered an artist, since he’d rather draw and doodle than anything else (especially during school). Drawing comics led to spray paint and graffiti, and eventually to Virginia Commonwealth University where he received a degree in Communication Arts with an emphasis in Illustration.

Kevin’s artworks are based on formal associations, which open a unique visual opportunity. By emphasizing aesthetics, he tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations.

As of late his own “Mission Statement” is to illustrate and create visuals to accompany and enhance an experience. Whether it be with music or reading a book, when an image can invoke a lasting feeling, mission accomplished.

Lindsey Hopkins

Classically trained as a painter, Lindsey Hopkins has spent the last 15 years as a multidisciplinary artist exploring hand embroidery, jewelry making, sculpture, collage, printmaking, and digital illustration. Inspired by a childhood full of imagery from Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, and the like, intensely hued color is found across all mediums. Drawn to nostalgia in antique and thrift stores, Hopkins loves to include vintage book pages, sewing patterns, and found objects in her work. Alternative surfaces are often used for this purpose as well, to upcycle or recycle items like playing cards, teabags, and wooden dominos. This playfulness with color and subject matter tends to attract both young children and adults alike. Though comfortable with any subject and scale, Hopkins is most often found working on images of anatomy, portraits, animals, and botanical illustration.
