As a freelance artist, I have worked on cover art and interior illustrations. I do not perform
work with a promise of payment later, "after my book has sold." Most publishing houses
have arrangements with illustrators on staff or freelance artists, and do not necessarily wish
an illustrator part of your expense. Please be advised that my rates range as follows:
$65 to $175 for color cover art
$65 to $150 for interior color illustration, per page, with a 50% discount on the second page
for a double-page spread (i.e., a single illustration that covers a two-page spread)
$40 to $100 for an interior black and white illustration
Artwork is rendered in either acrylic paints, watercolors or generated using a painting
software program. Discussion with an individual regarding requirements are included in the
final cost. Any editing which may be requested after issuance of the "final work" will be
performed at the cost of $50 per hour, and is not always feasible, so please be open and as
detailed as possible during the discussion stage.
All artwork remains the copyright property of the artist.
Rates are subject to change without notice, although not after negotiated for a particular
