Andrei Bat is a fine Illustrator. He will apply his artistry to fulfill your instructions to the last detail until you are satisfied, and offer his insights as needed to produce the best possible final result. I like the way he simply uploads his artwork without comment to let it strike your visual senses with your mind free and ready to absorb the overall impression while roaming around all the details.

I am an author looking to target young adults and those who are familiar with San Francisco and its iconic monuments.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
My aim is to show a white arm with a black glove popping out of the San Francisco Bay with a smaller than normal sized old brown book, called Papyrus of Adi in its clutches, with an orange crab hanging off the glove. In the background, the Golden Gate Bridge sits, surrounded by creepy fog. The waters below are very choppy, with white caps. Through the fog, behind the bridge, you can barely make out the Transamerica building and a few other buildings on the left. Otherwise, it is fogged in. Also in the fog, looking down towards the arm in the water are two watchful eyes that are disguised as fog, but can barely be made out. Several seagulls can be seen flying around, but only in that specific area.
The book size is 6.25x9.5 For the colors, I would like it if the Golden Gate bridge and the crab be a very bright orange, being able to stand out. Feel free to be creative as you can with the fog, yet make sure that anyone could tell that it is the Golden Gate bridge. In my sketch, I neglected to leave space at the top for my title, which this time may have a subtitle. If you could bring that sketch down a bit and just add some fog or sky, that would be great. The bottom can have choppy waters where my publishing company can put my name. So basically, I just need it centered. In my first book, the publishing company made it look as though magic was coming out of the book by adding an effect. I'll send you an image of it to see if you can duplicate it.
