Illustration Rates & Terms

Updated 11/17/2013

I am available to do artwork on commission! This web page gives you an idea of my rates. Sometimes I have to turn jobs down when I'm too booked up, so please email me first.


Terms

1) I require half payment in advance, and a signed letter of agreement promising that the other half will be paid immediately on receipt of the final art. Payments can be by check, money order, PayPal, or direct bank transfer, and are non-refundable. Please negotiate with me through email or Facebook before sending me anything.

2) I provide preliminary sketches so that you can request any major revisions before I've started on the final. I will do 1 round of *minor* revisions after the original is complete, if necessary, at no further cost.

3) I pay domestic shipping and any other basic incidental costs. Overseas orders incur an extra $20 shipping fee. Insurance is at the client’s expense.


Sample Rates

These are my standard rates. You're buying both the original art and all of the reprint rights. Email me for rates on other media and sizes. I do all of my work on bristol paper unless otherwise specified.

Character Portraits

I do character portraits on heavy bristol stock paper, 8 1/2" x 11" in size. Portraits may only include one character each, and no background. Full payment must be made in advance. Preliminary sketches and revisions are not provided on character portraits, so make sure you tell me everything I need to know before I start.
