    • The cost of illustrating a picture book varies by what exactly what is needed for each book. Are there a lot of characters that need to be fully created and designed? Does the clothing need to be researched? Are there complicated backgrounds with historical or regional details that need to be researched and accurate? Do you want the characters to look like someone you know? These things can take a lot of time. On the other hand spot illustrations with simple or no backgrounds and very few unique characters take less time. Will you also want the book designed? What about setting text in place? Do you need formatted digital files delivered to your printer or POD?

      I usually only give prices after I have carefully read the edited manuscript. It takes me about 6 months to finish illustrations for a picture book. A rough ball park figure would be between $10,000-$16,000. I hope this helps to answer your question. I am now booked until July 2022.
