If you are self-publishing a children’s book and looking for a top-notch illustrator, then you’ve come to the right place! Not only can I help bring your vision to life with beautiful high-quality artistic illustrations, but I have developed a straightforward, organized, and efficient process to take care of everything from A to Z. Scroll down for more detailed information. As an experienced graphic designer, I also include professional layout and book design into my services, so you will not need to hire a separate designer for that, saving you money in the long-term. In the end, you will be given high-resolution printer-ready files. As a web designer for the last twelve years I can help you with your website as well.
“Moxy” & Drawing Challenge – Spot illustration vs scene
I like to start with an exploration call to get a good idea of what you are needing. My pricing is based on how many characters need to be designed, how many illustrations/pages and the detail of the images.
Once we decide to move forward there is a contract and deposit phase. I generally do a 50% / 25% (milestone) / Final payment schedule but this can vary depending on how big the project is.
Characters, Rough Sketches & Storyboards Oh My
I start working on roughs, this can be from a character viewpoint or dummy for a larger book. Main character roughs and color pallette etc.
Painting the finals
After the roughs are approved I move onto a 2nd phase drawing that is cleaner but not painted for review and then the final illustration phase is the painting.
“Elijah Was Brave” and “Title pending”
If I am doing the book layout, design and book cover I start working on this step.
Print friendly files are delivered or if I am not doing the design the hi res version of the illustrations.
