Hi! I'm Shawn Encarnacion, a freelance cartoon and graphic artist from the Kansas City area. Thank for visiting my portfolio website!

Creating memorable branding characters and logos is one of my favorite passions! You'll find some of my favorites that I have created since I began freelancing full-time in 2006.


I love getting to know my clients and what they care about. I listen closely to understand your passion so that I can create an iconic face that will reflect your unique values that your customers will recognize. Please allow me to introduce you to your company's new character today!

Shawn Encarnacion's talent is exceptional and so is his customer service.  He worked closely with me via email and phone to understand my vision and very quickly created sketches that hit the bulls-eye. Shawn met or beat all our agreed-upon timelines with professional digital illustrations that will truly add value to my brand.

This was my first time using iFreelance, and Shawn made the whole experience a pleasure.  He exceeded all my expectations, and I am glad to give Shawn my highest possible recommendation!

"Shawn is a creative genius. I gave him 3 concepts for cartoons, he did background research then, asked me a few questions and within a short period of time he was able to produce 3 stunning cartoons. He somehow was able to capture the images I had in my brain, enhance them and then add a magical touch."
