Thank you! Looks like you draw children's books, too? This one is all me, but I am wondering about drawing for someone else. Can you tell me what kind of price range you would charge for doing the art on someone's children's book? I have zero frame of reference.

Hello Camie,

The price range depends on how much realism is required, as high realism takes more time and is more detailed. Also a factor in pricing is how much research is required. For instance, realistic images for a non-fiction historical book take a good deal of research in order to render the images so that they are historically correct.

Covers also range in price according to this, as well as whether a back cover design is requested, and if the title typesetting is required.

I don't ask for or expect royalties on self-published books (depending on client).

My Prices:

•Color Covers: range from $250 - $375

•Picture Book Interiors: Colour Illustrations- $115-$175 per picture

•Interior Black & White Illustration: $70 to 90

•Color 'spots' $90

•Black & White 'spots' $50

For self-published books I may cut the price in half or more depending on the client, cool or not, poor or not.

I hope this is helpful to you. If I can be of any help feel free to contact me.

Have a great day Camie... =)
Patrick.

lol... If you do work for any kind of company doing or publishing house you can make big money. It changes with self publishers, some can pay well and some cant afford much.
