Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to the most common questions I get asked.  If your query isn't answered, get in touch.

Price wise there are many factors including complexity of project, duration of use and how the illustration is going to be used.  The more information you can provide in your initial email and/or design brief, then the more accurate a cost I can provide.  Everything is uniquely created for you.  No AI is used at any point.  

Yes!  I work with self published writers, as well as publishers.  I understand how difficult it is for writers to get their work picked up by the main publishing houses and self publishing is incredibly popular, and successful.  You will initially require a complete copy of your story.  All manuscripts are treated confidentially.  Contact me to discuss and to check availability.
I can provide:

  • Fun and unique illustrations that children (and big kids) will love
  • A series of book layouts and sketch revisions
  • Affordable and professional illustrations 
  • Final print files supplied to you in your desired size and format (High-resolution PDF, TIFF, PSD).  Please check with your printers as to what their size and file specifications are.  

As quick as possible but it is dependent on the complexity of the project or other projects I may be working on.  If you want a single image that’s quite simple with a possible few changes then you will be looking at a few days.  More complex briefs will take longer.  Children's book design and illustrations vary on the length of text, the complexity of text and the number of spreads required.  Picture books require a number of months for completion.

I want you to be ecstatic, delighted and excited when you see the final work so I will keep you briefed throughout the process.  Most clients are happy with a few mock ups/sketches at the initial design stage, and then a few more as the piece progresses.  

Alterations will affect the timescale of the piece being completed, so it is important to make changes at the initial sketching stage.  I cannot make changes to the design after this stage.

Yes!  I love working with, and supporting, start ups and small businesses.  Contact me, tell me a bit about your business.  I can help with promotional material, custom logos, headers and designs for websites, signage and flyers/menus.
