Illustration Scope of Work


In Short

Your project will involve original illustrations for use by yourself, "the client". This project will follow the timeline outlined below. Your project will cost $40/drawing, unless otherwise stated below.

Project Scope

This SOW covers the following activities and deliverables.

  • Original, hand-drawn illustrations (3 per stated concept given for review)
  • 1 Revision Period, in which time I will finalize the drawings/illustrations for each concept


At the end of this project, you will receive:

  • 1 final drawing per concept in multiple formats: .jpg, .png, .ai, .pdf
  • Final drawing per concept in multiple sizes


Your schedule will depend on your specific contract. This list is an overview of what may be included on your specific project schedule.

  • Discuss Project Concepts (over the phone, by email, or in person)
    • This process usually takes an hour or less
    • We'll decide if we're the right fit for each other
  • Sign Contract
    • You will have 48 hours to review the contract and sign
    • You may request changes to the contract only once
    • If you've made changes to the contract, after I re-send for approval, you will have 24 hours to review
  • You, the client, will provide all content assets asked of you
    • I will provide you with a list of the information needed
    • You will have 5 days to provide me this content. After this time, you will be charged $50/day for each day the content is late.
  • Illustrations Phase 1
    • I will hand-draw & illustrate your concepts, each 3 times, to ensure you have options to choose from
    • I will import hand-drawn illustration into Illustrator, where they can be made into Vector Art
      • This means no matter what size you blow the illustrations up to, they will maintain their clarity and form (no pixel problems!)
    • Phase 1 should take no longer than 2 weeks
  • Revision 1
    • Meeting Time - Face to face, email, or phone time to discuss options moving forward
    • You will have time to give your thoughts, opinions, and critiques
  • Illustrations Phase 2
    • I will make your proposed revisions for no extra fee
  • Revisions 2+
    • You may decide your illustrations need some extra love. If at this point you decide you need more edits, you must pay an additional fee per revision
    • Revision 2 = $40 (Total $80 Drawing)
    • Revision 3 = $60 (Total $100 Drawing)
    • Revision 4 = $80 (Total $120 Drawing)
  • Deploy to Client
    • I will deliver to you, via electronic mail (or a downloadable hyperlink), within 2 days after you approve the final design(s), digital files containing the final design(s), in the following format(s):
      • white/black background & transparent background
      • .png, .jpg, .pdf, .ai
      • I will deliver to you a "rules" sheet explaining how to use the drawings
  • Client Sign Off
    • At this point, you will sign and date a contract stating you are happy with the design created and that work is complete
    • You may re-hire me under a new contract if more work is needed


The total price of your project will be $40/drawing, unless you, the client, decide to partake in more than one revision. See above for Revision 2-4 Pricing.

You agree to pay my rate and pay in full before I provide you the deliverables. If you have opted in to any extra revisions, those payments are also due before the final deliverables handoff. Late payments past 21 days will incur a 5% fee (every week past due date). 

You understand and agree that until you pay me in full, I own full rights to each and every original design I create for you under this Agreement. If you don’t pay me in full, you agree that I can complete, exhibit, use and sell the design(s) at my sole and absolute discretion. You also agree that I own all of the concepts created before you select the final design(s).

I understand and agree that after you pay me in full, you will own rights (as defined in this Agreement) to the final design(s) that you approve and I create for you. You understand and agree that I own all of the concepts/preliminary designs created before you select the final design(s), except for elements in those concepts that are incorporated into the final design(s) that I deliver to you. You will receive rights for the final design(s) only. You agree that I will retain the right to use the final design(s) and all preliminary designs in design competitions, publications on design, educational purposes and in marketing my design business. You will be solely responsible to make sure that the design(s) I create for you will be available for use in commerce and protectable under trademark law.

Original Content

I promise that, except for anything that you gave me to incorporate into the design(s):

  • (a) my work will be original and will not be copied in whole or in part from any other work
  • (b) I own the rights that I am giving you under this Agreement, or I have secured such rights to any third-party content incorporated into my final design(s)
  • (c) my work does not violate the patent, copyright, trade secret or other property right of any person, firm or entity.

I promise that this Agreement does not conflict with any other contract, agreement or understanding to which I am a party. Finally, I promise that I’ll hold and maintain in strict confidence any confidential information that you provide me (such as proprietary technical or business information), and I will not disclose such information to any third party except as may be required by a court or governmental authority.


You agree that you may not make any changes or additions to the drawing(s) I create for you under this Agreement, without my express written permission. You may however, change the size of the drawing(s) if you need to make it smaller or larger for printing or display purposes.

If the work I am doing for you includes the drawing, I give you the full rights to use the drawing I create in any and all media without restrictions of any kind. Additionally, I agree that after you pay me in full, I will cooperate with you and execute any additional documents reasonably requested by you to evidence such assignment of rights.
