The illustration business is like a snowball... the more commissions you take, the more people
will see your illustrations... and the more new commissions you will get. This is all very well, but unfortunately the price of a freelancer
is in most cases also like a snowball: The more known they are, the higher are their prices - the
snowball gets bigger and bigger.
I find that attitude both strange and wrong. Sure, the audience will respond more to a style they know
and have seen before, but this doesn't necessarily mean that the artist has worked longer or harder
with the illustration, does it?
My basic policy is that I aim at a fixed monthly income. This means that the price You will have to pay
to make me take Your commission is directly connected to how long time it
takes me to make the illustrations... and not to how many people who have seen my illustrations.
If Your commission is relatively small, I will work with a fixed price per hour, and for
larger commissions I work with a similar fixed price per day.
Below, I have shown a collection of
different illustrations taken from this homepage together with the price
You would have to pay for a similar image, to give You an idea of the price level.
All prices are without cost connected to postage and cashing of international checks.
If You want to, feel free to take a look at an example of
a production in progress, taken from an earlier commission!
