  • image of Dorothy L. Project for Bassel E. $1600.00 USD

    “This was my first project with Bassel Elkadi for illustrating a children's book. I found him to be very responsive, friendly and most importantly will to make any changes I preferred. His turnaround time was amazingly fast. He included cutesy things I didn't think about. Bassel also answered all my questions and helped me understand the Freelancer system. He sent me the draft sketches several times so I can visualize the colors and final painting. His patience was much appreciated. I would highly recommend him to others.”

    “Great freelancer. Excellent work. I am continuing to work with him for several illustrations and completion of a children's book.”

  • image of Brian K. Design project $5025.00 USD

    “Working with Bassel is great. Very understanding of my vision and accepts my feedback. However, it is rarely necessary as he nails my vision the first time more often than not. Highly recommended.”

  • image of Lisa C. Illustrate a children book $850.00 USD

    “I really enjoyed working with Bassel. He was very patient with me as I explained what I wanted in my illustrations. I think he put in great effort trying to make sure my pictures were exactly the way that I wanted. I also appreciated him giving me honest feedback an explained artistry rules to me when necessary. I will work with him on my next book since he now knows the feel that I'm going for in my series of children's books. Even when I didn't know what I was doing while learning how to navigate Freelancer, Bassel would screenshot images with drawings to show me what to do. I am so proud of my first children's book, thanks to him!”
