Are you looking for an artist for hire for your next creative project? Why not hire an artist with over 7 years experience doing freelance graphic design and illustrator work? Hire an illustrator and graphic designer who can bring your vision to life visually.
Hey! I'm Kenal Louis an artist who creates illustrations and designs. I practice a wide range of mediums in the arts from digital painting, traditional drawing, and photo-manipulation. I create art series inspired by fashion, music, and various cultures.
In 2011 Kenallouis.com was first launched in 2016, which has gone through several changes in identity over the years. Today the site is one of the most creative visual art blogs online. Much of my artwork process is visually documented on Instagram. I can promise I will deliver you only the best art and you will get the most creative artwork for your project.
To me, Art is equivalent to life. Every day I make it an objective to create art in some way, shape, and form. Once in a while, I take upon doing a daily sketchbook journal, but lately, I've been developing art series after art series. The main reason behind this is to purely express myself and my creative visions.
In 2016 decided art would become my business. I'm an artist with a lifelong dream and vision of waking up every day solely to create art as an artist. However, I want to create art and be successful at it.
Since I made the decision this was the path I wanted to go I've been fortunate to land some awesome features for my art online. I am an illustrator, traditional media artist, and more. I've designed logos, book cover art, album covers, t-shirts and more for past clients. As you scroll down you will see my work and can decide if you would like to hire me for your next creative project.
An artist is an expressive being. Most other artists I encounter are not very articulate or are shy from an interaction. I believe as an artist it is important to speak up and be also expressive vocally regarding the art that you create. People cannot always interpret your art or your thoughts by simply studying your work.
I've found that some people who see my abstract art or art that I create with symbolism confusing. This being the case, they then ask me a long list of questions, which I do my best to explain.
Now, sometimes this brings me to the point where even I start to wonder why I didn't come up with certain things regarding the piece.
Creating The Single Cover Art For Viral Song "Friday"
"Friday" is probably the most popular song I did a cover design for. At the time I was working with the independent record company Ark Music Factory as a freelance designer. Rebecca Black have gotten better over the years, but I designed this cover for her pop viral song. The song reached 65 million views before it was taken down because of the labels disagreement with the artist. It was re-uploaded and still managed to gain over 117 million views.
What Is An Artist For Hire?
An artist for hire is someone who takes on commission work for the visual arts. This could be a traditional visual artist who specializes in portraiture, a contemporary abstract artist, digital illustrator, and so on.
Artists have been getting hired since the Renaissance period and even in the 21st century; there are still art connoisseurs and collectors who support artists.
The world's top 2 richest artists Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons have sold more than$500 million worth of art.
The following list of services is a few of the creative art services I offer as a freelance artist. With over 8 years experience in graphic design, I've created a very diverse design and art portfolio.
High Quality Album Art & Design for Musicians
Over the past 7 years, I've been working as a freelance graphic designer. During that time I've done a wide number of album cover art for independent musicians and many companies, logos designs for brands.
The range of my imagination is unlimited and the range of my skill set as far as bringing a vision to life is also unlimited. From album covers to monumental sculpture rendered presentations, I've done a variety of work creatively.

I specialize in the following....
- Graphic Design
- Digital Paintings
Looking to hire an artist to paint a picture? Maybe you are looking pay someone to drawing a picture for your book. I have been drawing since I was a child and as a freelance illustration artist, I take pride in the diversity of my work.
Whether you need custom art for an apparel design or a digital painting for a family portrait.
The approach I take in creative art is very diverse and open minded. I believe firmly that nothing is new underneath the sun. In the digital age, it's almost impossible to create something that hasn't already been done. However, creativity allows us to produce art in our own direction.
Regardless whether something has been done before, a person can still create something unique as an artist I am always open to creating art in new styles and combining styles.
In recent years from the many art series I've developed, I've adopted styles I call my own. One is abstract impressionism, Afrofuturism, digital painting, and contemporary line art.
The digital illustration of Rihanna was painted as a piece in an art collection I call the Royalty Series. All of the illustrations from the set of digital paintings can be seen on the artworks page.
Each artwork is distinct and represent the individuals in the art collection's personas and field of work.
I am available to do Facetime, Skype, and a Google Hangout call after the inquiry. I have worked with many clients in the past that had bad experiences before working with me, they couldn't trust the artist to deliver. Some people are not responsible and reliable, I AM.
Communication is the primary reason graphic design was created. At the time referred to as graphic communications. Today it is still very relevant and is the key thing people are looking for when they are looking for a designer or artist they can work with on a project.
Unless you are located in Omaha, Nebraska chances are you are not close to me. However, I've spent the last 7 years working with clients all over the United States on projects. From Atlanta, New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and many other major cities. You can take a look at my diverse portfolio to see the wide amount of works that I've done as a freelance artist and designer.
Why Should You Hire Me For Your Project?
These two key attributes are also very important for clients. Initially, when I take on a project I ask the clients what is their deadline and goal timeframe to get completed.
If I am unavailable or know for certain that I will be unable to complete the project I do two things. I either let them know what time-frame I can realistically complete the project for them or I tell them I cannot take on the project because of workload.
Being consistent in follow-ups and sending messages to update or doing phone calls is also an active part of me being successful in my freelance work.
This in return builds credibility and makes me a reliable person for the job. Conscience wise I know with confidence that I am also the right designer and artist for hire.
