i know there is a book called “the etical pricing guide for illustrators” or something.
i can’t find it.
does anyone know what i should charge for a guys that wants me to make a newspaper ad for him.
he wants a black and white illustration, specifically a cartoon called "dating guy"
at some point he wants like 6 different ones, all in different “akward” dating situations, but just wants one for now.
i figure between sketches, to ink i can prob do it in a few hours (3-6) depending on size and detail.
then maybe another hour or two to put the whole thing together w/ type in photoshop.
one guy i talked to said i should tell him 200 bucks from start to finish, and tell him if he decides to make it a series the 2nd-5th will be 150.
also, i was gonna send him some sketches of what "dating guy: might look like.
should those sketches be freebies, or do i charge for them?
