Book Testimonials & Sample Illustrations
Two Distinctive Styles to Choose From
Your work is great as always... Earl
I hired William to illustrate my Children's book. At the time I had a story and very little ideas of what I wanted the illustrations to look like or even what size requirements I was going to need. Working with William made bringing my book to life an easy process. I sent him my story and broke the sentences down by page and if I had a general idea of what I might want for the page illustration I let him know. If there were pages I had no idea what I wanted I let him use his own creativity. I was very impressed with the results. My illustrations were great quality and I love the colors in them. The illustration fit very well with what the page was trying to portray. When I received the illustrations from William the size and resolution were already the perfect size to publish the book on Amazon Kindle. I didn't have to change a thing. I also published the book as a paperback book through Createspace.com (Amazon's print on demand publisher). Again I was able to just design the book with the illustration I received from William and I did not have to change a thing. I would recommend William to anyone looking for quality illustration and at a great price.

After submitting a highly-detailed, non-fictional request, which required action and suspense in a setting of near dull monotony (an unpainted living room), William was able to capture all specific details outlined, and generate a realistic vision for all characters. The setting pictured on this cover sets the tone for this book, and William managed to gather intrigue, wonder, and a desire to hear this story with his illustration. He has demonstrated the ability to create existing characters in the moment, during the time period.
It would be easy to say the best part is how quickly you were able to do this, but I can't say enough about that cover. I've already shown it to one of my friends and we both love it. The more I look at it, the more it grows on me. And I already think very highly of it.
Thanks again, will definitely reach out for future work someday.

Love it! Entire different vibe when getting young people excited about going to school. Great work. Thanks and take care...
I really enjoyed working with William on the front cover of my Adult Fiction Novel (Eclipse: A Guardian's Saga "A Warrior's Moon"). I was very certain of my vision, wanted the cover to really tell a scary story in triumphant way. William was a great professional! He listened to vision and then made it his own and added to the work greatly. I really benefitted from his years of experience as I'm sure every writer can no matter the genre!
(Hey William this looks great, you really feel the meaning and dominance of the moon in this take, the werebear is terrifying almost like a final boos and the man is suffering but is clearly being empowered at the same time!)

William's illustrations brought my narrative to life and tears to my eyes. After years of searching, his artwork fully expressed my visions and dreams and have created a lasting legacy for my family and friends. William and I made a connection that went beyond a work relationship and his experience, wisdom, advice, and calm nature can do the same for your story. He is your man!
I really appreciate you going above and beyond for me!
You are a true professional but above all a great person.
I am very fortunate to have made your acquaintance.

It has been my pleasure to work with William on "Flynn at Home". He is a professional who knows how to bring characters to life on book pages. William's attention to detail and the author's vision come together in the best way.
William Paul Marlette is one of the best Children's Book Illustrators that I have come to know. His professionalism and amazing attention to detail to create just whta the author wants, is always foremost on his mind. He creates each illustration with gentle strokes of artistic genius!

I had the pleasure of working with William for the past 3 years. He has illustrated all 3 of my books, starting with bringing my Rocky and Rollie to life in Illustrations. William is easy to work with and the quality of his work is worth every penny.
I highly recommend William Paul Marlette!
Thank You so much. I have enjoyed working with you and the quality of your work. I feel like your illustrations are a good balance because they bring my story down to earth.
