I'm finally (for the first time) gettin' paid for an illustration...
Wow, this has been an enlightening experience even just to this point! LOL! We haven't even signed a contract and simply articulating the design/revision process together has been... interesting! I know the specifics of these things vary from field to field, but making sure we have the same understandings and definitions--both of us coming at this from a newbie/novice perspective (as they've never used an illustrator for their previous albums but photographers instead)--has been a wonderful opportunity for discussion! I'm amazed at how different priorities can be. LOL!
It's all good--no train wrecks thus far! It's just very interesting... Assumptions are tricky little things aren't they?
