“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.” ~Leonardo da Vinci

My art and the clients that I work with are incredibly important to me. Since I started my professional illustration business in 2010, my main goal has been to put my clients first. I work closely, one on one with each client to bring their vision to life, and ensure that they love the final illustration, whether that be a cover for their first novel, an image for their product packaging, or a portrait of their shamanic spirit animal.

One of the joys of being a freelance illustrator is the variety of art genres that I get to work in. I welcome anyone who enjoys the work in my galleries to contact me with their project. Although I specialize in book covers, I have extensive experience in magazine illustration, video game illustration, packaging art, logo design, and poster illustration.

In my personal life, I have studied and practice shamanic, and energetic healing work. This has transitioned into my art, and I greatly enjoy working on shamanic, and spiritual based art for clients. Examples can be viewed in my shamanic gallery.

Most importantly, above genre, style, or technique, is the respect that I strive to show each and every client. I work hard to make sure I understand your illustration needs, your beliefs, and to deliver your art on time at an affordable price. Throughout my site you will see client testimonials from several different genres, and I welcome you to contact me with any questions that you may have.

“Kip has been an absolute treasure to our media company. Not only is he talented, responsive and frankly, forgiving of our frequent changes and additions, he’s also remarkably affordable. I can’t say enough good things about Kip’s work and his work ethic. His original artistic work on our Celestia Project helped us win a Gold Award in the Folio Awards for the first time.  I wish we had the budget to hire him full time!”

“Kip Ayers has the unique talent, patience, and eye for detail to manifest an individuals’ thoughts and conception into fruition. Over the last few years, he has developed logos, character designs, and website backgrounds for me that generate excitement for fans of my book series and myself. His art not only motivates me to continue and complete my stories, but stimulates enthusiasm as fictional characters become meticulous, realistic, and inspirational visions.”             ~C. N.
