Book Packages are available at several price levels to meet a variety of needs. Using a combination of full color spreads and or small icons and character elements, we can meet the design needs to fit your budget. Book Packages generally range from $1,500 - $5,000 for illustration depending on size, detail, reference, time frame, and research involved. Official price quotes are determined after initial free consultation.
The price does not include printing. The price also does not include book layout. I work with several book designers who will get your book ready to print using my illustrations. We work closely together to develop a style sheet for your book. If you go on to write several books in a series, the style sheet will provide continuity throughout the series. Font, color pallet, layout, size, and style are all developed together with the book designer. Additional book design fees can fall in the $500 - $1200 range. You are welcome to use your own book designer or self publish with your own layout software.
For Children and Adult humor books, every page will be touched by illustration and give it a unique and continuous feel from the front cover to the inside liner pages, leaving the reader wanting more. Special details hidden within the pages add elements of surprise and wonder for even the youngest readers.
You own the rights to reprint and use any materials drawn for you in all of your marketing materials. So you can use the illustrations to promote your book, build a website, make posters, tee-shirts, temporary tattoos, product, packaging and anything else you can conceive. I also maintain the rights to use the illustrations on my website. However, the pieces will not be available for sale to any other publication. They are custom drawn for your project.
