I am a highly creative children’s illustrator who is able to work in a variety of media, including gouache, textiles and digital. I am also able to hand letter for a truly unique publication. I would love to hear all about your book project and unite our creativity to produce a beautiful children’s book in which the story and illustrations enhance one another for a seamless finish.
My illustration package is tailored for a 32-page picture book, including:
End paper illustrations
Title page illustration
15 double page spreads
The stages of the project include:
1. Rough Pencil Thumbnails - this step allows the author and illustrator to communicate on the direction and shared vision.
2. Detailed Pencil Roughs - this brings further clarity in the detail of the final illustrations, the author may provide their feedback once again.
3. Coloured Spread Sample - once the bones of the book have been laid down and approved, a colour spread sample is submitted to the author for to confirm progression to the last step.
4. Final Full Colour Artwork - the completed book provided as digital files (if any of the project included traditional mediums, then the hand illustrations will be scanned in 600dpi)
This provides the author with an exclusive 5 year license. All details will be clearly laid out in a contract.
1. 30% Deposit to commence the project.
2. 30% Payment due when Colour Spread Samples have been approved.
3. 40% Remaining balance upon receipt of Final Full Colour Artwork Digital Files.
A children’s book typically takes around three months to complete, however extensive hand drawn or textile elements may extend the deadline.
The price stated is a starting point depending on the complexity of the project. Components such as hand lettering, textiles etc may attract an additional cost, however I am happy to discuss your individual requirements and customise your package as necessary.
