What I do.
I offer a variety of cartoon and illustration services including spot illustrations, political cartoons, t-shirt designs, logos, comic strips, children’s book illustrations, and anything else that you can slap a cartoon on. I create illustrations for you.
How much does it cost?
A typical answer from an illustrator is that pricing depends on factors like:
- The time it will take to produce the art
- Usage of the art – is it for a one-off t-shirt or poster, or will it be used as company branding?
- Time you would like to buy the art for. Is it 2 years, or indefinitely?
- Copyright is the biggest cost factor. If you want to buy copyright out, this will incur a larger cost.
Basically, the more work required and/or the larger the scope of your usage, the higher the fee.
The truth for me is that I like to make cartoons and I will work within your budget. The only exception to this is copyright. If you want a spot illustration for $50, don’t expect full copyrights on it. Mascots and logos where full copyrights are required usually range from $500 to $1000 from a professional illustrator.
What is the process?
I’ve written a blog post about the cartooning process.
How does payment work?
A common payment setup is for half of the fee to be paid up front and the rest after the project is completed. I am flexible on this though.
Payments can be made through check or Paypal.
