Bring Your Story To Life With Book Illustrations

You’ve spent months, or even years perfecting your novel or short story. You’ve developed the character arcs and thrown in plot twists. But in looking through your work, you feel like something is missing. Could it be the book’s graphic designs element?

Color Cartel transforms the words you’ve painted on the page into illustrations that help to tell your story. By taking time to understand the tone and voice of your story we can deliver quality, beautiful book illustrations that you’ll love.

A Book Illustrator For Every Story

We handle illustrations for all sorts of materials including:

Children’s books

Picture books

Comic books

Graphic novels

Interactive eBooks


Training manuals

And much more!

Pictures Tell A Story

It’s a cliche because it’s true, “a picture says a thousand words”. Images compliment text like music compliments a motion picture. By hiring the right illustrator for your book, guide or novel, you’re even better able to convey emotion and sentiment than you are with words alone.

 Color Cartel’s Book Illustration Services

Children’s Book Illustrations

Color Cartel understands the latest trends in illustration styles, including watercolor, etching, and graphic design.
