I'll get right back to you to confirm I received the information and will turn a quote around quickly.
How can I get a quote for an Illustration of Infographic? Please call me or email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set up a time to discuss. Each job is unique and we will review the details so I can provide you with an accurate quote and timeline.
Do you subcontract out to other artists? When you contract with Drawing Impact you are working directly with me, the artist, Angelique McAlpine, from planning through completion. If the job needs more than one visual professional, I have a network of trusted colleagues to partner with, or I can join your team. If I am not available for your dates, I will refer you to a trusted colleague.
What is it like to work with you? Clients and colleagues tell me I am flexible, efficient, a good communicator, well-prepared, and a pleasure to work with. I deeply enjoy being a Visual Facilitator. I work with all sizes of groups from small C-suite discussions to conventions with plenary sessions of over 2000 people – every engagement is unique. Why do live Graphic Recording and Facilitation have such an impact? Observing the creation of the work allows for the Graphic Recording to become a valuable part of the collective experience. In my experience there is a powerful connection that is created between the observer and the information being shared, particularly when the drawing is done in real-time, with tactile materials such as paper and markers, and the artist is listening and responding in real-time alongside the audience or participants. The final product serves to help the group share their work, and refresh memories of the event. Visuals increase retention, help expand thought, help keep everyone on the same page, and support the work of the group. All of my work can be scanned and shared digitally.
Do you produce projects in your studio too? Yes, I often take on studio illustration projects for infographics, timelines, histories, kudos, and more. I also create graphic materials clients would like prepared in advance of an event including: Agendas, Templates, Instructions, Frameworks, etc.
My production department asked for “vector files”, can you do that? Yes, I can accommodate with Adobe based vector files created on the iPad, retaining the hand drawn character of my work. I generally start these types of projects with paper drafts, creating the final art on the iPad.
Do you work with other Graphic Recorders and Facilitators? If your event requires multiple visual professionals, I can arrange for a trusted team to bring your event to life. I am happy to collaborate with other visual professionals as part of an existing team as well. If your job is not suitable for my schedule or skill set, I will refer you to a trusted colleague whenever possible.
Do you travel? Yes, with great frequency. I generally fly out of ALB and am budget conscious for my clients. Baltimore, Chicago, San Antonio, San Diego, Orlando, Tampa, Austin, New York, Boston, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Columbus, Denver, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Portland, Seattle, New Orleans etc., are all easily and affordably reached. Boston and NYC are accessible by car or train and just a few hours away.
What do you draw on? I generally draw on white paper or foamboard. I am open to working on other surfaces. A flat surface is required when I am working on paper, there are a variety of ways we can accomplish that and I will work closely with you to make sure there will be an appropriate surface available. Studio projects can be drawn on paper, foamboard, or the iPad.
We have specific corporate colors, can you match them? Yes, I have a Pantone Guide and can closely match most three digit colors with custom mixed inks for an additional charge.
May we videotape you creating the art? Yes, and I suggest you consider a time lapse video as well, it is an effective way to generate interest on social media.
