Sam Batley created a fantastic series of illustrations for my book, everyone who has a copy has remarked on how good they are and how aptly Sam has captured the character of my poems.

I supplied all details for the characters I wanted depicted in my illustrations including some photos and of course the manuscript of my stories. Sam immediately was able to grasp the scenes required. I got him to complete an illustration of my main character and this confirmed that Sam Batley would be my illustrator! We then made an agreement.
First, he sent me sketches and then the completed illustrations when I had confirmed satisfaction with the initial sketches. It is a pleasure to work with this talented illustrator.

Sam was an absolute joy to work with from day one. He listened to what I wanted for my children's book and completed the project quickly. He is a very talented illustrator with a professional approach to his work. I thoroughly recommended him and plan to use him again. More...

Professional service from the word go. Spent the time to discover the ideas and concepts I pictured and desired creating. The finish was outstanding, having understood and translated my design brief into the finished product desired. Highly recommend.

I really enjoyed working with Sam. He created bespoke illustrations for me using photos I had sent to help illustrate a story book written as a gift to my wife for us to read to our baby boy. He worked in a very tight time frame, provided a free sample illustration, and was very flexible throughout the design stage. He even created an additional illustration for me for no extra charge because he wanted to help me finish the book! Could not recommend him highly enough, and the gift was very well received!
