You’ve got the perfect story? Edited and ready to go though some illustration + layouting magic to shape the good stuff into a ready-to-print format? You already know which format and print service you want to use? Congratulations and: Let’s go!
Here is our timeline for 36 pages- please read carefully!
I have read your manuscript- now: Let’s talk...
about what you want. It’s nice if you have some samples of what you would like. A moodboard (containing colour palettes, atmosphere, certain elements like clothing, textures or patterns) is always helpful here to get it just perfect. A shared pinterest board works great. Be sure to include your hopes and expectations as well as the right format (bleed and cover fold -in case of a hard cover- inclusive) at this point!
Layout sketch (2 weeks)
A rough draft of the finished pdf including line sketches and planned palette will pop up in your inbox. Look at it with eagle eyes and check your text again. Note every wanted change (it’s very ok to be highly critic at this point!) and send it back to me. After that we’ll talk about the changes.
Correction if necessary (1 week)
Like 2. but with all your wanted changes
Lineart ,flat colours, lightsources ( up to 4 weeks)
I will send you weekly spreads of the more defined artwork included cleaned linework and flat colours. You can still make changes at this point. Collect your wanted changes by page and send them back to me. This is the last correction loop possible!
Magic ( up to 4 weeks)
I’m jumping right into your book, adding glitter, light and rainbows, splashing colour and texture here. Enjoy yourself at this time. I recommend drinking tea and petting dogs. :)
