So you're looking for an artist to illustrate your
book but don't know where to begin?
You've come to the right place!
Hey, I'm Abz. I'm a children's book illustrator and graphic designer with over 20 books illustrated to date.
I've worked with many worldwide authors and publishing companies to bring their books and visions to life!
Check out my kid's book illustration style below, and continue reading to see how we can work together.
Whether you live in the Middle East, Tokyo, North America, or somewhere on a boat (assuming you have wifi), we can start by having a casual chat about your story idea and what you have in mind.
Your children's book can also be in any language!
How it's done
Below are the steps in which we'll discuss together to create your very own kid's book!
Samples of the illustration style are shown above. Each book will have its own unique twist. All characters designed for your book will be unique for your book only.
Is it a hardcover, colourful book for babies? An ABC book, perhaps? Is it targeted towards teens with a slightly more mature tone? Will it be an educational book with a message or a silly book about boogers? Are the main characters animals, humans, or monsters? Underwater, or up in space? All the fun details are discussed to ensure we're both aligned!
Each full coloured page is priced separately at $150.00 Canadian Dollars.
If you're looking to combine 2 pages together (two pages of text with one big visual across two pages), then the price would be $250 instead of $300. Please check visual below.
Front and back covers are priced the same, but if you're looking to cut down on cost, we can reuse any of the illustrations from the inside and tweak each of them for $50, instead of $150.
Contact Info + Names
The title of the book and our names will be on the front cover, and on any inside title pages if needed. Both our social media accounts or websites will also be included (usually on the back cover) as contact information.
A lot of authors write their stories with someone in mind, or after being inspired by someone or a subject matter. Sometimes they like to dedicate the book to those people or places. We can include a custom dedication page with a personalized note from you.
'This Book Belongs to' Page
We can also include a "This book belongs to" page where the child can write their names.
We can also create a fun activity page or two at the end of the book. "Colour me", "Spot the Difference", or "Notes" page etc. This additional page has limitless options and we can get quite creative here!
About the Author + Illustrator Page
Another additional page a lot of authors like to include is a page or two about themselves, sort of like a biography section. We can include photos or characters of the author and illustrator.
Timeframe and Sending Process
Once we've agreed on all the details, you will be kindly asked to send the manuscript for me to read. Once we agree, you'll also be kindly asked to send 50% of the total payment upfront via Paypal, bank, or wire transfer.
I will then begin working on your book immediately. I will send the sketches for the entire book in black and white for you to review before I begin colouring and details.
You get 1 free edit per page. Additional edits may be made for $10 a change after that.
Once we agree and finalize the outlined illustrations, I will begin colouring, adding details, shading, and finally text placement.
Once the whole book has been approved by you, I will send the final snapshots of the book, and you will kindly send the remainder of the payment.
Once completed, I will then send you the full quality, ready-to-print PDF of your story!
Please note: If you find the price to be above your budget, we can further discuss details and find ways to simplify the illustrations.
Everything is customizable and flexible!
I look forward to hearing from you so we can further discuss details.
