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!

Some of My Illustration Work

how much does illustration work cost?

Hiring an illustrator can be a significant investment – and 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 investment will be. Illustration prices are calculated using the rates below.

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.
