“John was instrumental in creating the beautiful illustrations for our 5 star Amazon book, “Facing Heartbreak.” During this very detailed project that had many moving parts and deadlines, John continually impressed our editors and co-authors not only with his creative and professional illustrations, but also with his fantastic “go for it” attitude and incredible work ethic and follow through. There was never a time where we had to wait on John, he delivered impeccable illustrations in a timely manner.
Additionally, I have hired John as the artist for my Growth Counseling Services products, including cover art for an e-book, numerous illustrations, as well as logo art, website banner and image art; I continue to be impressed by his creativity and impeccable follow through.
I cannot say enough good things about John - he is an artist, a team player, and a creative genius who is a consummate professional. I refer to him often and will continue to use him on all future projects.”

“As an author and therapist, I have a special challenge when writing workbooks. In addition to sharing vital information with my readers, I want to create therapeutic tools for them. On my most recent project, Facing Heartbreak, John was hired to illustrate the worksheet exercises. He did an excellent job of doing so. My co-authors and I reviewed all the illustrations and requested some revisions based on some feedback. John made the changes and in some cases created new illustrations with ease. He made the workbook exercises come alive. He’s great at taking direction and thinking out of the box.”

“The first time I saw John’s work, I was struck by how deeply his art touched my imagination and evoked my emotions. The vibrancy and richness of color in his peacock paintings, and the stories I dream up when I move through its flowing images, make it a particular favorite of mine.
Several years ago, when I was a partner in a cookie company whose mission it was to create fun food products for children with diabetes, I knew John was the only artist who could truly capture the spirit of our cookie characters and portray the fun, child-inspiring images for which we were striving.
John has the unique ability to intuitively understand the vision of the project and its requirements, and then to deliver the finished product well before the deadline and above and beyond expectations. Very impressed in my work with John and can recommend him without reservation.”

“After searching high and low for an illustrator for one of our recent books, we discovered John Dubin. Not only did he do excellent work in a timely manner, he was such a pleasure to work with. He made himself available for conference calls so we could discuss ideas for each illustration in detail. And the great news is that we got our project done on time and on budget despite some crazy last minute requests. John’s flexibility made this all possible. I would highly recommend John. ”

“Working with John is always a great process. Not only is he a fabulous designer and artist, but he is prompt, professional, and overall a super nice guy. He will work with you until your design is ‘just right’. His designs are unique and original, not copied from someone else. John is a true artist! You’ll be proud to display any work that John does for you and I will definitely be working with him on my next graphic design artwork!”
- Becky Linot, Kansas VA
“Working with John was the most pleasant and stress reducing experience I could have asked for. He is prompt, professional, and an amazing designer. Starting my first business has been one of the hardest things I have undertaken and to have the peace of mind that my business logo was not something I had to stress over was amazing. John was able to take my unrelated, contradictory, nonsense adjectives and use that to create exactly what I had in mind was phenomenal. In the few days that followed the unveiling of my business logo, I received compliment after compliment. When you are juggling so many small moving parts it is a breath of fresh air to be able to have a graphic designer take minimal amounts of your time and create perfection! He is easily worth double his fee. Take it from someone who researches things to death and is a perfectionist; you will not regret entrusting him with the most important aspect of your business—the images that are the face of your product. John you are AMAZING!”

“I asked John for two small line drawings of elephants and what I received were two AMAZING pieces of art. The elephants were so detailed and perfect. I love them!”
