IMPORTANT – I’ll be closed to new clients in Dec and Jan while I’m backpacking overseas. If you need work done in 2022, enquire ASAP to avoid missing out!

Illustration

Like most graphic designers, I started out as an artist. That childlike joy is still with me, and I’m proud to be an illustrator as part of my paid profession.

I illustrate primarily with digital media, working with Photoshop for digital paintings and Illustrator for vector art. But I still love my roots in traditional media, too, and can be found with a paintbrush and a canvas doing a commission every now and again!
 
Whether your project is commercial or personal, let’s have a chat and talk about how we can bring your ideas to life through beautiful illustration.

Some of My Illustration Work

how much does illustration work cost?

Hiring an illustrator can be quite cheap or very expensive – it mostly depends on two factors. These are:

1. The complexity of the artwork you need – is it simple and cartoony or is it detailed and realistic?

2. What’s the purpose of the illustration – is it an accompanying element or does it need to have impact alone?

The more detailed and important the illustration, the more time it will take – and the higher the final price will be. Illustration prices are calculated using the rates below.

$85

per hour

Standard

My standard rate.

This covers all active design work, plus the time I spend packaging, perfecting, emailing, calling, admining, going to meetings, and paying overheads like office space and super.

$130

per hour

Express

“My mum’s going to kill me if this isn’t done today”.

This rate covers whatever it takes to get your project done in half the time, like pushing other jobs slightly or doing late nights or weekends. 

$900

per day

Day Rate

You’ve got a big job and need me full time for a day. From 9am to 5pm I’ll be working only for you.

This is a great option if you need a lot of illustrations done by a strict deadline.

– GST is included in all pricing.
– Let me know if you need to negotiate a custom rate.
