As of October 2010, Marty is working on the illustrations for two great books, two d20 manuals, three animated shorts, several logos, an avatar, three character illustrations, and too many other exciting things to count!
Oops! Marty has been so booked, he totally forgot to update his “booked through” date — that’s embarrassing! To make things easier, most of Marty’s projects are being handled through Ideaschema these days. If you’d like to set up an illustration project, check out Ideaschema.com (especially Creative Team in a Box). You can also drop Marty a note directly by clicking here.
Who the Hell is Martin Whitmore?
What an excellent question! Two cookies for you.
Martin Whitmore is a dangerous and brilliant evil illustrator who specializes in abstract concepts and character development, with a particular passion for anything that involves horror elements, hot scantily-clad pinup girls, D&D and adventure comics. He does lots of brilliant business illustration as well, including his work on The Usual Error (book page, illustration gallery) and illustrations for business websites, like the Raw Foods Witch, Sell What’s In Your Head, Linda Eaves’ Getting Off the Couch and Into the World, and dozens of others. He’s also done illustration work for Naomi Dunford’s IttyBiz SpeakEasy, Sonia Simone’s Remarkable Marketing Blueprint, countless small content illustrations, quite a few beautiful headers, and every now and then, an Evil Dead cast members portrait. He’s also illustrated a few really great ebooks, and he maintains a webcomic called Tasty Flesh about strippers surviving the zombie apocalypse.

Having a business is all about branding. In this age of the internet, every business has more and more facets of itself
to put across to its customers.
For your online presence, Marty makes banners, website headers, custom avatars, and pretty much anything else you can dream up. He can put together a banner for your website that includes an image of you — and you can use that image as a custom avatar on your social networking sites. Now that’s branding.
He also makes beautiful hand-drawn illustrations for use on the packaging of your products, or in your business pamphlets, that all of your clients will comment on with admiration.
