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.
