"Shawn was fantastic to work with on our project! We needed to have our Raider Rusher mascot illustrated and a Raiders-themed children’s scene created to wrap some walls in a playroom at the Ronald McDonald House in Las Vegas. It was a complicated request with many elements required – including multiple approvals and a fast turn-around. Shawn was very communicative and open to all feedback and requests. His talent is incredible – the vector art he produced blew us all away. We liked his style so much, we also asked for his help to create a matching van-wrap for the Ronald McDonald House transportation van. Our unveiling event was this past Tuesday, and we couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out. It was so colorful and cheerful – exactly what we wanted to present for this room. We would hire him again for other illustrations and design projects in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!"
- Rebecca Finlay, Art Director, Las Vegas Raiders Football Team
"I don't know what we would have done without Shawn! We needed a t-shirt design for the Raiders football team with a rather short turn-around time. The instructions from the team: "no pressure, but this shirt needs to be EPIC!" They wanted a t-shirt that would set the tone and inspire excitement for the upcoming season. And Shawn stepped up to the challenge! The team had so many different ideas and visions and last minute edits but Shawn never skipped a beat and was able to produce exactly what the team wanted. Our Head Strength & Conditioning Coach even said, "It's like he saw exactly what was in my head and then brought it to life!" I don't know a better compliment than that! I'm so grateful that I was able to work with Shawn! He's incredibly talented, has amazing time management skills, high energy and is just a blast to interact with. We will definitely be working with him again!"
- Cami Bennet, Las Vegas Raider Football Team
"Working with Shawn was a delight. He is a total professional. He has exceptional communication skills and is great listener. He was transparent about his schedule which enabled me to plan project. He works hard and is extremely focused—he took my project from concept to completion in about three weeks. He asks questions, is extremely diplomatic and infuses his enthusiasm for his craft into his designs. He was true partner when I had to pivot my production plans from Asia to the US and was conscientious about communicating cost effective ways to address some of these challenges. There are not enough words to enable me to recommend him. Ten stars!!!"
- Auria Styles, Bird Turds Card Game, Nutty Toybox

- Colin Moffat, GiftCash
"It's not very often I award 5 stars as I think you really need to knock it out of the park to receive all stars. And Shawn did just that! Shawn has been an absolute pleasure to work with from our very first call and did an amazing job at creating our corporate mascot from scratch. He has a real knack for bringing characters to life and letting their personalities and emotions take on a life of their own. As our mascot images evolved, Shawn was fantastic at asking detailed questions and offering suggestions to get every last detail just right - from the facial expression down to the positioning of his fluffy tail. The quality of his work is outstanding and so is his professionalism. He has been incredibly responsive every step of the way and mindful of our deadlines. He keeps the lines of communications open every step of the way and has thick skin when it comes to feedback. He genuinely wants to create mascots that embody your brand and puts a lot of thought into his creative work. We'd hire Shawn for creative work again in a heartbeat!"
- Kristal Heiry, CareServ

His communication was great and he asked clarifying questions before beginning to work on the project which saved us a lot of time.

"Shawn was a true pleasure to work with. He set up multiple phone conversations to make sure we fleshed out really what I wanted in a logo/brand icon. There were multiple decisions I was having a hard time making on my own but with his creative input, he helped me dream up the perfect symbol for my motorcycle club. He drew up a few drafts and was happy to make tweaks until we came to the vision in mind. He went above and beyond when he reached out directly to an embroidery shop for me, to help find more information on sewing the actual patches that would hold his illustration. I will definitely be using Shawn in the future if/when the time comes for more artwork. Highly recommend!"
- Elizabeth Gardner, Salty Madames Bike Club

- Nick Edelen, Jackazz Burritos
Shawn is a real asset to the Upwork community. On this project he had an immediate, excellent grasp of the brief, which was evident in his response.
