Today I wanted to share yet another one of my great illustrators with you :)
An illustrator I've been working with from the very beginning - and who keeps presenting wonderful artwork for all of us to enjoy in Burning Suns.
Angelita Ramos is a freelance illustrator and author from the United States, who was hired on to the Burning Suns project over a year ago.
Angelita has many years of experience with illustration, and has done a wide variety of work on both book covers, logos and fan art.
- And now, she is also well rounded in the world of science fiction ;)
As a project manager and officer you don't have to remind me that communication is key to success, no matter the industry or profession you're working with, but to see results unfold in correspondence to communication has never been clearer to me - than when I started to work with Angelita.
Angelita is kind and friendly to talk to and she always makes you feel good about your product wishes and ideas. She knows the importance of keeping a productive dialog with room for ideas, and she's not afraid of telling you if she has run into trouble, which makes it so much easier to sort out, before anyone has wasted precious time.
Make sure to check out her splendid work on DeviantArt!
While some illustrators like to run with the ball as soon as they gets it, Angelita likes to keep things in a very transparent progress continuously updating the status of her work - and asking for feedback.
As the employer or project manager it's very reassuring to work with someone like Angelita, who never runs away from an idea or trashes your input.
Angelita is also the architect behind SunTzuGames' logo - depicting the head and torso of a science fiction inspired samurai.
When you're working with illustrators over such a long time as I've done, you know that commitment is one of the most important factors for a successful outcome.
I've had a great time exploring ideas with Angelita, and she is always ready to try out something different in order for us to achieve our goal. Angelita is always keeping it professional - with a friendly and positive attitude.
I've never had the chance to read Angelita Ramos' book - Polar Bear Kisses, but if it's anything like her other work, people won't be disappointed!
(don't worry, it doesn't have anything to do with our friendly fellow on the left ;)
I was lucky to find Angelita when I needed my characters and aliens illustrated, and by now (or after reviewing more of Angelita Ramos' great work) I'm sure you know that Angelita's strength lies in characters.
It doesn't matter whether we talk aliens, human or animals, Angelita knows how to make them "likable", "full of hatred", "fearsome" or "curious" - she has the spectrum of emotions in her power.
It goes without saying that I can recommend Angelita Ramos all the way!
She is a trustworthy, professional and kind colleague to have on your projects, no matter the scope and time frame.
Best regards Emil Larsen, SunTzuGames
