The children’s book illustration process normally consists of the following steps:
STEP 1: We gather info from you — your manuscript as well as pictures and descriptions. Your assigned children’s book illustrator will use that info to create preliminary character sketches. The sketches are normally JPG or PNG files.
STEP 2: After you approve the sketches, your children’s book illustrator will develop the storyboard. This is a PDF file that typically shows detailed sketches in relation to the text.
STEP 3: Once you approve the storyboard, the children’s book illustrator will create final colored illustrations to be printed in book form. You own 100% of the rights to these children’s book illustrations.

How Much Does This Children’s Book Illustration Service Cost and How Long Will It Take?
Your MindStir Media children’s book illustrator will work with you from the beginning, creating character sketches and then, after your approval, developing the storyboard and illustrating. This is generally a 60-90 day process, depending on revisions required. And we don’t charge an hourly rate, so you’ll know upfront exactly how much you’ll be paying for each illustration: We charge $150 per illustrated page. Each page can have as many characters as you’d like. Ten single-page illustrations, for example, are only $1,500. No hidden fees. Our pricing is really that simple.
