LOOKING FOR A COVER ARTIST

Issue #1 of The Radically Ordinary Adventures of Mr. Teacher and Panda just published in the Spring of 2015. The goofy, dry humor book follows the debut adventures of the tempermental Mr. Teacher and dull-witted Panda as they face off against life's more trying tribulations - death, work, police, taxes and grocery shopping. Following a sell-out debut at Boston ComicCon, the self-published book is nearly done with Issue 2!!

Looking for someone to do a cover in a golden age/silver age style. We have the cover completely designed and sketched out, just need a professional artist to draw it up for us.

We have a tight budget, so would be looking for someone to do both Pencils and Inks or Pencils/Inks/Color as well. Depending on price! 

We ideally want to have the cover done asap, but mid-November at the latest.

Please contact me with what you usually charge if you're interested. You can send me an e-mail at mike.saver@gmail.com

Hello!  

I had a quick question about hiring freelance artists to do cover art!!

Since I'm still new to all of this,  I really have no idea what might be considered a fair rate to offer. 

What would a standard rate be to hire an artist to draw a cover (standard 6.625 x 10.25) size? 

It would just be the art, no letters?
What would a fair price be for pencil and inks? And what would a fair price be for pencil, inks and color?
Thanks!!

+Michael Saver OK, this is a tough question to answer. This will vary with different artists and the style that they do. For someone new and wants to break in, this could be very low and so on.

Anyway, to be fair I know most artist will charge:

$300 - 600 USD for a full, cover-quality drawing
Pen and ink on 11″x17″ bristol board some will limit to the number of characters; cover copy, logos and trade dress are paste-ups. This will go higher as you add color.

Head over the the CBC Artist Community to hit up some artist there... good luck :)

For and untested artist I would say anywhere from 10 - 50 per page, For a pro any where from 75-200 a page...Really it will come down to what you and the artist can negotiate and feel is fair between the two of you. Back in the 90's I was charging 50 per page, Now for a one page cover I would probably go somewhere between 20 - 35 for pencils and 25 - 50 for inks, but I have been out of the game for a long time.
