Need Custom Children’s Book Illustrations for Your Book?
We’re here to help! The children’s book illustration process normally consists of the following steps:
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 sketches. The sketches are normally JPG or PNG files.
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.
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 30-60 day process. 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 $120 per finished illustration. That’s $120 per publish-ready single-page illustration or $120 per publish-ready double-page spread illustration. We don’t charge extra for the sketches or storyboard. Fifteen finished illustrations, for example, would cost you $1,800. No hidden fees. Our pricing is really that simple. We’ve seen our competitors charge $240 to $350 per illustration — two to (almost) three times more than the price we charge!
