I wanted to let you know about a VERY useful resource: a website called Fiverr ([https://www.fiverr.com/categories/graphics-design/digital-illustration?source=category_tree]), that is an incredible repository of graphic designers and illustrators. We spent hours looking for a good illustrator until Jens and Tania, our amazing publication designers at One Hemisphere, pointed us to this site. It has thousands of artists from all around the world on it, and examples of their illustrations. Most charge as low as $25/picture. We found a really good artist in Nigeria, Neaemeka, on it, who is illustrating our upcoming “Guide for Communities Negotiating Contracts with Potential Investors” (not the final title). Check his drawings out at: https://www.fiverr.com/ekeochannaemeka.
Let me know if you have any questions. there is a 20% discount for one’s first contract.
