I am a professional illustrator focusing on children's books.
I believe that the key part of a successful collaboration is regular and clear communication between the Client and the Illustrator. Before I give you a final offer, I love to understand every aspect of the project.
The Client talk to me with all specifications about the project and I can start to work.
MY WORK METHOD
Depending on the work's complexity here is a simplified one-step-at-a-time guideline for how I work.
Based on our communication we finalize the brief and agree on specifications and conditions. From there, I provide an offer for the job. Once the offer is accepted and a deposit has been paid, I start working on design sketches. If you ask for changes, I will implement the changes and send the sketches again to you to review. Once the sketches are accepted we proceed to the next step, the color version! If the colors are ok and don't need more changes, you get the final files.
Note: In general I offer two free revisions. Ideally, two of them should happen at the early phase of the job to save time and money for both of us.
In the case of book covers you will get 2 different sketches to choose from.
In the case of 20-24 pages of book illustrations, I will create a storyboard with thumbnails.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE...?
Depending how big is the project. It's really important to discuss the time schedule at the start of the project.
- book cover illustration - 2 / 4 weeks
- 20-24 illustrations for a 32-page children's book - 3 /6 months
- black and white illustrations for chapter book - 2 / 6 months
