Hey Everyone! Glad to be back this time of the year again
Monsters under the bed have now met their match. #Stinky #socks
Day 1 : Poisonous !
Illustrator at ease.
Learning something new everyday!
Delighted to share that 'The intimidating White Canvas' and I, just got featured in the 'Best Indian Illustrators' annual!
Humbled & super stoked to be featured among some really awesome Indian illustrators
Check out my instagram and facebook to find out which other illustrations of mine made it in it!
Lastly, If you are currently going through an art block thanks to a super white screen or canvas, just tone it with a neutral gray and you should be good to go!
What do you do to overcome an art block?
Please share your experiences and thank you for your support in my artistic journey !
Here's my take on fun Halloween Meets Inktober ! :

Update: Had a video call and I have to admit, we got on very well.
It's the client's first time doing something like this and he was very understanding & open to ideas.
I shared my thoughts on the short timelines for the scope of work & how 4-6 months is a decent time frame. He understood & agreed that he didn't want to rush anything but didn't want it to take forever as well. Quality is more important than quality. So that's good.
I also mentioned that budget was on the low end of the spectrum & 15k was industry norm and that work for hire is an expensive affair and unnecessary, as he is planning to print 1000 - 2000 books in the first run. Other questions like how many languages & countries is yet to be decided. I offered a licensing situation which he's open to look into. I'll have to share a couple of options in that regard that works best for both of us. The budget is around 3k though.
Understanding the low budget but fun project situation, we have agreed to I sending in a sample sketch of one of the character & a creature, which will be paid for, if the project doesn't work out. It will be included in the total illustration cost if project does move forward.
What is the normal cost for a line sketch of a kid character & a creature? How does 50$ sound?
Thank you @Nyrryl-Cadiz for your thoughts! I appreciate it.
Could you share a ball park of how would you charge for the style I shared? Either way, appreciate the time taken to answer my queries as much as possible
@arielg Alright! Thank you for your inputs
A warm hello to you!
I have been approached to do a children's book comprising of 30 - 35 illustrations ( approx. 15 spread, 15 spot ), for a 32 page book, in my painterly style as seen here:
It's a 'work for hire' project and while that's not ideal, it's a project that will allow me to design creatures which should be fun : )
Couple of queries:
Looking forward to your insights!
Thank you everyone!
Have an awesome day! ( or night! : ) )
@LauraA Thank you LAura : )
