Illustrating / Illustration for a hot sauce logo?
« Last post by fxscreamer on July 09, 2018, 03:04 PM »
I know it's not directly related to books, but it's a bit coincidental I'm having multiple questions lately of hired illustration. Honestly, this question is closer to logo design than anything.

A friend of mine is making his own hot sauces and wants me to draw a cartoony anthro pig for the design. I don't know his scale of ambitions or budget yet. He's also not sure what he wants, so he's already saying "can you do an example or two to show me". For me, the answer is NO before payment haha. Time is money.

Question is, is there an easy approach to this? Is this simply just a buyout project, work for hire? I was thinking $300-$700 (after researching) for a head or bust shot of an anthro pig (with set number of revisions), but not sure what parameters I should keep track of. I believe he's running his operation from home, self starting. He told me he's initially using it for hot sauces, but eventually branching into bacon and other products.

Thoughts?

LOL what a video! I remember that meme, and Will Terry does some great work as well. :D

√ėyvind Torseter's "The Hole" might be an option, too. :)
