Mr. Stephen Blackmon was very instrumental in helping me with my first book. His professional attitude and courteous manner made it easy to work with. His attention to details and understanding heart were beyond measure. He is such an encouraging person, with a beautiful heart and a lot of patience. His illustrations are a brilliant piece of art. Outstanding!! I have never seen anything like it before. Friends, relatives, and acquaintances of mine are mesmerized at how beautiful the cover, illustrations, and painting are in my book. The painting is fantastic work! He is on top, with class. I am looking forward to working with Mr. Blackmon again on my next book. I highly recommend Mr. Blackmon to anyone looking for an illustrator.
