I am a published, freelance, children's book illustrator offering my illustrative services to up and coming authors who need bright and eye-catching pictures to bring their words to life.
I live and work in a little village in Norfolk, UK.
Art is my passion and I aim to capture each authors individual vision in my work. I greatly value the uniqueness of each author and their book and give my all to every project.
I can provide references from authors I have worked for on request.
I charge reasonable rates that can be discussed via email.
Here are some endorsement's of my work from various authors
"Emily Jade Hercock is such a pleasure to work with. She is simply amazing. She works extremely fast and her customer service is 5-star.
I loved working with her and look forward to working with her again."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Emily as an illustrator for my second Children's book, "I Am What I Say I Am". The experience has been nothing short of pleasurable.
Her illustrations have been perfect and have gone beyond what I could have imagined for the end project. Her vision was amazing, I just told her what I was looking for and there it was. Everything was done in a timely fashion and the few changes that I did request were made as well. I was extremely happy with the finished product and the short time that it took to get them done. I will definitely use Emily again for my upcoming projects. Thank you Emily for an awesome job!"

"I would recommend Emily's illustrations to anyone looking to publish a children's book. In fact, I have recommended her to my family and other authors in the field. Emily is amazing. She's super talented, professional, and nice. Although, our business relationship is strictly online, working with Emily feels like she is just down the road. She truly adheres to the customers' ideas and work very hard to bring your idea to life or to get as close as possible! I will definitely give her 5 out of 5 [🌟] [🌟] [🌟] [🌟] [🌟] and she is the only person, I want illustrating my children's books!"

"When I initially asked Emily for an illustration as an example of her work, the brief I gave was light to say the least. However, I was immediately impressed by the example she sent me. I'm creating a quirky character, and Emily drew it better than I even imagined. Since then she has used her skills to provide other illustrations which have impressed me greatly. Needless to say, they are exactly what I need for my fictional blog/book.
When working with Emily, her responses have been fast, always keeping me informed of progress or ideas. The commissioned work is returned in a timely fashion, and any corrections are undertaken promptly by Emily.
It is a pleasure to work with Emily, and I hope our continued collaboration will be a success."

"It is with great pleasure that I write this endorsement of Emily Hercock with regard to her abilities as a picture book illustrator. She is a talented illustrator with an imaginative style, and her willingness to collaborate with me throughout the process of putting our book together is a testament to her work ethic and perfectionism. She was very precise in her completion of scenes and added her own ideas to each illustration. She met deadlines and actually was ahead of schedule at all stages of our project. I would not hesitate to recommend Emily to any author looking for an illustrator who will go above and beyond what is expected of them. I couldn't be happier!"
