How do I brief the picture book illustrator?
If you've never briefed an illustrator before we know that it might feel a bit daunting (and exciting!), so our plan is to make the briefing process as easy as possible. Once you have briefed your chosen illustrator, and paid an initial deposit, they will draw the first test page for you or the main character. After you have approved the test page they will go ahead and illustrate the other pages in your book.
A note to remember: Your illustrations will be totally bespoke to your book, therefore it can be a time consuming process. Once your drawings are approved it is very hard to go back and amend things 'here and there', so please try to be as clear as possible in your initial brief. Being clear at the initial briefing stage will help to keep your costs down, if more changes need to be made further down the line that is when extra costs can happen.
