Pricing and other awkward conversations
The most awkward part of this illustrious job is pricing. I’ve tried to simplify my processes and pricing here.
My prices are pretty low. I like to make stuff and I like people to enjoy it. As a rough guide I charge around £10-£15 an hour. I can negotiate, and if you’re happy to pay me more I’m cool with that.
Helping the helpers.
I try to be fair with my pricing, especially for charities or groups doing something amazing to make the world a better place. If you fall into one of those categories drop me a line and we can have a chat, see if can help you help others. I want the world to be a brighter, light-filled place. If that means working for less then I’m good with that.
You don’t work for free. Your doctor doesn’t. Your airline pilot doesn’t. I don’t. ‘Exposure’ kills people on Mt. Everest all the time. It kills illustrators too; if we work for free we can’t afford to put the heating on. That’s me in the picture, can’t even afford a brew. Is that what you want? Me all cold because you want a freebie? Please don’t ask if I can work for exposure. I’ll refuse and I’ll sign you up to a newsletter about goats.
