    So my sister is due to give birth at the end of next month and I want to get some artwork created for the little guys room. I want a poster that looks like the cover of a children's book starring the little guy and the family dog. Does anyone know an illustrator or where is best to hire one?

    Thanks,

    Mezzz

    It might be worth looking at styles of artwork first. I guess most artist would like to know what style's you want it as first. Pintrest maybe for ideas?

    Once you have that you can then search for an illustrator to do the work. Try some of the groups on facebook independent artist, take a look through their work and contact them.

    Thanks for your help, I think you're right I need to decide on the style first.

    @mezzz how did you get on with this?

    I'm tempted to get her to do some artwork for me.

    I e-mailed her and she replied. I had some other question, but I am yet to hear back from her.
