It was that one on one relationship that we established from the very beginning. And I've done a lot of business that way where I get a good sense of his ethics by talking to him. I looked at his sample work and I just had a good feeling about him.

One of the best things was when we had some issues that needed to be revised, Toby jumped right in there. After the sale, after money has exchanged hands. That means everything in the world; when a man will stand behind his product or his service.

I have a good feeling about working with you. Obviously we're on our second book with you. This is a definite match. What I would say is if you are looking for a good illustrator, that stands behind his work, this is the place to be.

You and your team returned my phone calls and emails. You answered my questions. You listened and you understood my needs. You developed a solution so that I could get my results in the price range that I was in.

What I liked about the website is that you could navigate right through it and it shows your work really well. A wonderful portfolio, except that it's even better because you have that pricing structure laid out for us where we could understand if you want this much illustration, this is the price. If you want this much detail, add on to this.

You helped me out so much it was hard to put into words.

Two things. One is yourself again Toby and the rest of the people that work with you. I find it very easy. I don't have any stress with it. I think we're on the same page when we talk and when you do things. And then the other thing is your work. Your work speaks for itself. Everything that I send you, you send back to me and it is better than I could ever have imagined.

I just think that speaking with you Toby, I think that you are your best asset. And I just think that being able to work with someone and being able to know that you can trust that person and that you're going to get what you are paying for.

I went to the Internet and typed in a few words that I thought would help me find some graphics for some seminar materials that I use and I looked at two or three and then I came across this website. It was the most interesting and the easiest to use. I never looked at another website. I'm just glad I found you early.

Well there are two things that stand out way above everything else. One is somebody had to take words and create something that when you looked at it you would be surprised, you would feel intrigued, you would be super interested to know what was going to happen next. And somehow, just sending you words and descriptions and some adjectives, out of your head or somewhere you created a graphic that I could use. The second thing is, it was quick. You always responded within a day and made every adjustment that I ever suggested. To me those two things, to be able to be unique and quick and I guess if I had to add a third I think the pricing of the services and the hours and the time that you gave me was so fair. I would never ask or try to go to anybody else.

When a person isn't sure of what it is they want. If they knew that on the other end someone was as versatile and as interested and as involved as you are personally, it would change the uneasiness, change the fear factor - like what in the world am I getting into. So, my best advice is always give this website, give you a chance. And since there was never an obligation, I never felt pinned in the corner. And was just surprised at how quickly you were able to zero in on what I wanted.

It's amazing how quickly and how personally you can have any of your needs met. At least from my point of view, I've been trying for thirty years to get good graphics to go with things that I do in seminars. So I would say to anybody, give Toby a chance.

Children's Book Illustrator Artist

Hello, my name is Toby Mikle Google+ and I have been a freelance children's book illustrator for the past 16 years. I knew that I wanted to be a children's book artist at a young age, My first books were for my teachers and friends.

While in the Air Force I was commissioned to paint several squadron murals. Shortly after serving I went to a local art school and learned everything that I needed to know to create children's books. I was excited to learn about Typography, Printing, Layout, Computer Design and all of the software used in book design. I graduated my little college with honors and was asked to come back as a guest speaker on several occasions.

After Art School I worked at a production company in Minneapolis. There I learned all about art direction and project management firsthand. I was always interested in bringing artwork directly to the printers for small and large jobs so that I could see how books were printed and how the various print machines operated.

When I had enough orders of my own to start off on my children's book illustration business, I quit the production company and started Illustrating books full time. This has been my life for the past 16 years and I have Illustrated over 300 books to date.

My favorite part about the process is actually taking someones dream and making it a reality. With the step-by-step design of children's books from concept sketch to final illustration, I keep the author and their vision in focus.

I cannot wait to see what the future has to offer. I continue to improve my design skills and never stop learning. I can now create E-books and hope that I will be designing books well into the future and on mediums not yet imagined.
