Illustration

Please note: due to having a new baby, I am taking a break from projects with strict deadlines. If however you don’t have a strict deadline, or you don’t want to start your project until 2023, then I will happily consider working with you on your illustrative project.

All my illustrations are hand drawn and/ or painted, and are sensitively considered to match your book and own style. I have however bought a tablet which I am currently learning to use, so I can add this to my mediums for clients to choose from in the future. In initial discussions, we will talk about the style and medium that you would like your final illustrations to be in, as well as the size, layout, and general mood you’d like to convey. I work closely with the author and publishers, sending regular updates of progress, which helps with communicating ideas and getting them right the first time.

For a 32 paged children’s book with full colour illustrations, authors and publishers can expect to be charged from £2000, which includes: pencil sketches, colour sketches, and the final image of each illustration. This is subject to contract, and can be negotiated depending on the types of illustration ie pencil drawings, paintings, full colour, size, detail, amount of research required etc.

If you’re interested in having me work with you on your own project as an illustrator, please send me an email at smiles-art@outlook.com. Tell me a bit about yourself and your project!
