Frequently Asked Questions

What will/won’t you draw?

Specifically, I will not draw:

  • anything illegal
  • blatantly hateful (racism, sexism, etc.)
  • material with a strong religious or political agenda

If you are unsure, please ask first.

Do you take (free) requests?

No. It is unfair to my current clients.

How much do you charge for your services?

This really depends on the details of the project.

Anything related to general illustration or concept art requires a conversation before I can give you a solid estimate.
For comics, I need to review the script to give you a solid estimate.

As a general guideline, please refer to the rates shown here as they pertain to the comics industry:

Also, http://fairpagerates.com has more details on current industry pricing and commentary from other artists working in the industry.

What is the payment schedule?

This varies from project to project but typically I will accept 50% up front, then the rest upon proof of the finished product.
