Anastasia is brilliant. She conveys facial emotions beautifully and provides interesting angles so the artwork flows. Great colours and characters. We commissioned her to draw a 30 page book (Eve's New Brother at Parakeetbooks.com) and are very happy with the result.
We had a great experience working with Stronglikeastronaut. He understood our concept and delivered many fun variations of the mascot. We would definitely recommend working with him.

Perfect execution on brief.
Tuta was GREAT! All the ideas and revisions we needed for the book cover, she provided promptly, and with great visuals. All in all, it was a wonderful finalized product. Would highly recommend her!

A girl of about 4 playing with her train track and her baby brother grabs a piece and destroys part of the track - the girl is angry. EDIT: Their two mummies, who are a couple so their body language needs to reflect that, are watching from the sofa / kitchen (whatever works) and one of them is speaking to the girl "He just wants to play with you" (this is just so you know what's going on, we don't actually want a speech bubble). The children are mixed race, they have brown skin. One mummy is white and the other is black.
We need bold colour and design.
This will become one page of our new book - the winner will then be commissioned to illustrate the full book.
The book is about a young girl slowly accepting her younger brother and starting to love him. The kids have two women parents but that is not a central plot. Have a look at what we have made already here: Parakeetbooks.com
