Illustration: contracts, pricing and copywrite

Freelance illustrations is:
  • hard work,
  • requires you to plan ahead,
  • requires you to have business knowledge,

  • Affects the quality of your work, ability to meet deadlines and peace of mind.

The first thing we always recommend is to stock up on your Steven Heller books. One of the most prolific writers on the subject, his books are relative goldmines of illustration. Featuring heaps of amazing interviews with legendary art directors and working illustrators, some books even include example course syllabuses for you to set your own assignments. I would start with The Education of an Illustrator, move on to Inside the Business of Illustration, and finish with the most recent,Marketing Illustration.
My other two favourite books are How to be an Illustrator by Darrel Rees (founder of the Heart Agency) and the phenomenal AOI publication, The Illustrators Guide to Law and Business Practice.
If you head online, there are more sites than you can poke a stick at. This list will probably be updated, but our favourite sites at the moment are: Escape from Illustration IslandIllustration MundoDrawn!Illustration Friday.

Want to commission an Illustrator?

Illustrators Australia encourages clients and members alike to follow a broad set of guidelines when commencing a new project using illustration. These guidelines intend to produce a mutually beneficial outcome for both parties, and ensure that everyone has a basic understanding of Standard Industry Practice. For example, a lot of clients new to the industry do not realise that commissioning an illustration does not automatically mean they own the artwork, and that the illustration cannot be used for any other purpose other than what was agreed upon with the illustrator.

This is amazing

the idea of this...which is just an image...but changed science and pereptions of life. This is a shadow of a dna, the image taken by the famous rosalyn franklin, which was snuck out of her drawer to be shown to Watson and Crick, who subsequently gained the glory for discovering the double helix shape of dna.
