I will create a custom cartoon for your business or personal needs. Rates are based on the complexity of the cartoon, the anticipated use, the rights you purchase, your timeframe, and whether you want color or black & white. Simple cartoons cost less. Full color, complicated cartoons cost more. I have a $100 minimum. These rates provide guidelines only. Please contact me for an exact quote.
For newspapers, magazines or other publications in print or online.
For individual non-commercial use.
For business or personal use.
I can create a finished cartoon in a few weeks, a few days, or even one day if you need it immediately. I will work within your timeframe to make sure you receive the artwork on a timely basis.
I will provide you with sketches during the preliminary phase to show you what the final product will look like. That is your opportunity to make changes so that you are satisfied. After you give me the go-ahead to begin the final product, I can only make changes if you agree to pay an additional negotiated fee. This is because any changes require me to start all over again, which requires extra time on my part. This precludes me from working on other projects.
Typically, I require a deposit of 50% before I begin work, unless otherwise agreed upon. The remainder is due upon completion of the project. Although rare, there are occasions when a client has decided they are no longer interested in the work after I have begun. The 50% retainer assures me of your seriousness, and it prevents me from losing money if you decide you no longer want the product.
I accept cash, personal check, and credit cards (through PayPal). I will send you a PayPal link for you to remit your payment. If you don’t have a PayPal account, PayPal will help you create one. Signup is fast and free.
The process of providing you with sketches is so that you know what you are getting. That is your opportunity to comment and make changes so that you are satisfied with the final cartoon. If you truly are not satisfied with my work, call me and we can discuss options. I want all my clients to be satisfied.
Although I don’t work for free, I urge you to call me to discuss your situation and I’m sure we can work something out.
Unless we’ve made other arrangements, I own the copyright in my artwork. You receive a license to use the original cartoon for its intended purpose (which we agree on).
