Payment methods: I accept cash, check, PayPal, MasterCard, Visa and I will consider barter. (I hate mowing the lawn… I’m just sayin’)
Normal payment schedule: On large jobs, such as a book or a series of drawings. 1/3 of price for deposit, 1/3 at approval of roughs, and the balance on delivery of finished art.
“Rush” jobs payment schedule: 1/2 of price at agreement to proceed, and the balance on delivery of finished art. (Books are still based on the 1/3’s schedule even if there is a rush charge, due to the number of drawings.)
Estimates: I’ll be happy to give an estimate if you can send some basic information about your project. There is no magic formula, but an estimated price follows, based on an 8″x10″ page.
Price is listed for each size based on Full color, line drawing with 2 spot colors, and then line or tone drawing.
