Bullseye! "Robin Hood" illustration hits the mark for Children's Theatre

Joe Barsin receives a glowing review for his latest illustration. Childsplay Theatre for Everyone, located in Tempe, Arizona contacted Joe with the need for art to brand their upcoming production of "Robin Hood." The illustration had to be created quickly and within budget. Joe first went to work sketching his concept on paper. After receiving feedback and approval, he completed the final art using Adobe Illustrator. It was a fun and successful process for all involved. Read review below...

Sketch presented to ChildsPlay for approval."I was working on a very tight deadline for my theatre company's season brochure and was in need of an illustrator that could understand my needs quickly and efficiently. I was very lucky to have found Joe through Thumbtack! I put out the request/proposal and received a response in less than 24 hours. I gave Joe a brief synopsis of what I was looking for (one of which was an illustration that could portray ACTION!) and was happy to get a sketch very quickly from Joe. He was incredibly descriptive in telling me about how he imagined the final piece so I could have a full understanding while looking at the sketch. I was lucky that Joe was right-on on his first try and I made no changes to his sketch.

The illustration turned out absolutely beautiful and promotes the play as exciting, inviting and fun! AND Joe was 1 week ahead of his deadline!!.. making my job even easier. I would recommend Joe to anybody or any company looking for an efficient, professional and incredibly talented illustrator. Plus, he was a pleasure to work with!"
