Freestyle Illustration FAQs

How do I start an illustration project?

An illustration project usually begins when the illustrator or client identifies a purpose for an illustration. The purpose for an illustration can be for anything from artwork to display in a residence to an illustration to be used in an advertising campaign. When the objective is identified, setting a budget and a timeline and finding an illustrator are next steps. If an illustrator meets the needs of the client in terms of talent, capabilities, cost, and turnaround time, then that illustrator can be hired with confidence.

What will a client receive when ordering an illustration?

The type of illustration a client orders will determine what the client receives. Quality illustrators will provide their clients with finished work that aligns with the original request. To ensure this occurs, it’s important that clients select illustrators who are capable of delivering the type of art required, can communicate effectively, and want to provide the best service the client requires.
