Here is a little information to give you a helpful idea of fees, briefing and timing.

Below are some questions that help us decide what kind of project it is and how we may best create it:

• Please describe what the composition might involve? people? animals? landscapes? etc…

• Can you send over some visual reference or detailed art specs?

• How large are the illustrations and in what context will they be placed?

• How many illustrations do you require?

• Can you send over layouts with text in place so the artists knows the exact space they have to work with, or would you rather have us do that?

• If it is a book, what will the final trim size be?

• When would you like the artwork created, what is your tentative schedule?

• Would you like to use the images solely in the book, or in other places, such as merchandising?

• If you have a ballpark budget that would be helpful to know.
