A working artist and illustrator experienced in portraiture, children's and graphic novels; formerly commemorative illustrator for the Franklin Mint. Illustrator for many nationally published books, including the Chrismas Token and Nikki and the Tree Keeper.
Rate: Generally $250 to $500 per page for illustrations of black and white; the range for color illustrations is more based upon time and complexity. Drawing portraits start at $275 for 5x7 drawings, $295 for 8x10, $350 for 11x14 and go up.
Oil paintings/ color illustrations are determined by the job.
I have now added digital coloring to my services! For most drawing illustrations to be colorized (excluding book covers), prices start at $150 above the price for the drawing and go up, depending upon complexity. This is a significant savings over traditional oil illustrations in color.
Book cover color oil illustrations and portraits generally range between $1,300 and $3,800 depending upon size and complexity.
