How can an Illustrator Help?

Pirates aren’t the only thing you might use an illustrator for.

Cartoonists illustrate VERY tasty maps!

Map of Otahuna Lodge, Tai Tapu – 2011

Here are a few starters:

•Authors in Auckland have books decorated with delicious digital drawings;

•plenty of power point (and prezi) presentations pop up over the planet with our portrayals.

•National hospitals (in Australia and New Zealand) use this Canterbury company of cartoonists to create visuals for staff training and planning.

•Several Schools pay us to pictorialise their teaching resources.

•Wellington’s web savvy wise-men broaden their blogs; brightening banners with clever custom cartoons….

•…breakout bands add artwork to album-covers: a simple strategy to secure stronger sales of CD’s.

•Try our custom caricatures for bizcards and ads,
•Manually made maps make your customers glad.
In Dunedin, Hamilton or just down the street:***
Draw yourself out.
Folks, have a treat!

We also cater to folks of a more serious nature:

The Cartoonist from B & N Creations has been providing illustrations, fine artwork and cartoons for over a decade now.

We understand and value the expectations of a varied clientele, both private and corporate and we taper our pricing to fit your budget.

Our work is an amalgam of tradition and technology.

Our cartoonist draws by hand directly to the tablet: it’s digitised and ready for print, web or wherever your final destination might be.
“The Cartoonist”  and “B & N Creations” are based in Christchurch, New Zealand – a happy placement: The Christchurch giant CERA (Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority) had named us their “Preferred Supplier.”

This Cartoonist named "Preferred Supplier" of Medical Adventure.

Preferred Supplier of Medical Adventure.

CDHB (Canterbury District Health Board) comes to our artist regularly to spice up their Presentations, Posters and Staff Training resources.

We also supply illustrated artwork to the Canterbury Clinical Network, the South Island Health Alliance and the West Coast District Health Board… to the far North Island we’ve supplied commissions to the NDHB (Northland District Health), and begun work for the Health Department in Tasmania. Our illustrator has painted posters for Regenerate Christchurch and customised cartoons for the Christchurch City Council. We’re adept at art for websites, books and have made album covers in America*…
The Cartoonist  produces numerous company avatars for social media and tops the year off with personalised Christmas Cards.

A mascot captures the personality of your business. A caricature of the team rewards both the staff and boss… a memorable birthday gift.

Train your staff and educate clientele with our infographics, either static or with animation.

While we’re on business, animated video speaks brilliantly for itself… whether for advertising, seminars or corporate presentations. It’s an infographic with motion.

Our illustrative logos are more visually appealing than traditional logotypes and they bring greater recognition to your brand.

A good cartoonist has more uses than a mad scientist has cold coffees.

For a bit of inspiration have a browse through the gallery and the descriptions in the “our services” tab.

**We’ve also got artwork in Perth and Sydney. The Perth client is a Geology firm. THAT’s rocker status!
