MurphyToons is a Creative illustration firm specializing in original content development for children’s audiences. I illustrate children’s book for authors who aspire to uplift and encourage young minds. My name is Michael G Murphy and I started MurphyToons to help everyday authors just like you to tell their stories. I’ve had the honor to work with many talented self publishing authors and amazing illustrators for nearly three years. I am a proud member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

Our Mission

At Murphytoons we do 1 thing really well. We illustrate beautiful children’s books. This has been my goal from day one ,and it will always remain our key offering and capability. We believe in stories that uplift children and we also believe that authors shouldn’t have to sign away the rights to their first born just to have a book made (cough, cough) yes, we’re talking to you vanity publishers. Whether you’re looking to make a small family book, classroom book, or a picture book for the broad public you’ve come to the right place because we care about authors and we care about kids.

We will NEVER ask for royalties or copyright sharing. We are NOT A PUBLISHER and we will never pretend to be one. MurphyToons is a creative firm specializing in Illustration and Book Design (Cover & Interior Layout). We will NEVER give you anything other than our very best and we PROMISE to always put you and your story FIRST. You will work directly with me, Michael Murphy, to illustrate your book. When the project requires special expertise I bring in other talented artists and e-book developers to make your book the best that it can be. You come in owning 100% Copyright to your story and you will leave owning 100% copyright to your story, illustrations, and characters. We do business this way because it’s the right thing to do.
