 funds to hire an illustrator or a publisher?
Here are some ideas…


Unless specified otherwise  or by contract prices always include initial draft/sketch, 2 revisions plus final artwork in print ready format. If more revisions are required they can be obtained at an agreed hourly rate. (In case of project termination before completion, agreed hourly rate applies to number of hours of work done thus far). Larger projects, involving multiple illustrations would require a mutually agreed contract.






No Time”, or is it “No Self-Esteem”? | The Ocotea NewsletterTimetable  for Illustrations & Children’s Books:
They can vary greatly depending on artist, style, media, size, complexity, but are often underestimated. If you want to hire me, bear in mind I am a very busy artist.  I am generally engaged in multiple projects running concurrently. Also my style of work is very detailed, meaning it will take longer than a few sketchy cartoons. A single full page illustration with details and background in my style of work can take anywhere from 2 -4 weeks. Spots or partials take less time, but it is smart to plan between 6 – 12 months ahead for a 15 – 30 illustrations children’s book.
