Beautiful illustrations help the reader connect your words with your story.
Good illustration should match the style of your book and enhance your story.
Find an illustrator that matches your style and vision, rather than trying to get an illustrator to adjust their style to fit yours.
You will need a good idea of what you want your illustrations to look like – share styles, images, ideas, and what your vision is with your artist.
We can help you pick the right person, and help you find the balance between giving them structure and creative license.
Deciding what style of illustrations to use in your book is key to obtaining the right illustrator.
A good place to start is looking at examples of existing illustrations to see what might suit your book. Some styles are more cartoonish while others are more realistic.
Different styles of illustration have different completion times. If your illustrations are more complex, plan on a longer turnaround time. This will also affect the overall cost, depending on how much of the artist’s time you are paying for.
