A bit about me... 

I've been a freelance illustrator my whole adult life. Yup. I've never actually had a 'real' job. After graduating from the Academy of Art in San Francisco ( I taught fashion drawing for 4 years drawing for their online degree program) I began freelancing and have never stopped! I love coming up with solutions to all types of challenges for illustration and design projects – One of my favorite things to do is to collaborate and make connections – get the right talents together and know that it is the perfect team for the project. Whether it’s a design job, fundraiser, campaign or film, a solid team makes all the difference and recruiting the right folks for any given job is one of the things I do best. Animators, filmmakers, editors & musicians - not many things I love more than having a project where I can work with a team of creative people. 

My work is used in lots of different ways: fashion and general illustration, for marketing collateral, editorial, animation, web design, logo and brand development and more. Take a look through my portfolio, browse the projects I’ve worked on. Feel free to email me gaylekabaker
