I charge professional rates and deliver professional products! They are estimated by number of illustrations/designs, people and background scenery required, artistic style and details required in illustrations. To provide accurate cost estimates detailed descriptions for each illustration are required.
A minimum 40% deposit and signed contract is generally required for a project to start. Next installment (30%) is due on approval of sketches. Final payment (30%) is due before artwork is shipped. Smaller projects (under $1000) are payable upfront. Artist provides unique and customized service, and you will be able to give your creative input on the design and approve sketches before artwork is finalized.
Projects are done on a “First Come-First Serve” basis. Artist always works on several projects. It is strongly recommended that projects are planned and booked with artist well in advance of publishing dates. (Children's book projects with many illustrations can range from 3 to 6 to 12 months depending on scope of project. Single images and cover designs from 2 - 4 weeks to 4 -10 weeks.)
