COMMISSIONING CARTOONS

 If you are wanting a cartoon tailored to a unique subject or to accompany a specific article than you can commission me to draw one for you.  Fees vary  depending on the size and type of publication the cartoon is to be used in.  See USE OF CARTOONS WHERE FEES APPLY for a rough idea of the base fee.

On top of this base fee there is a commissioning fee.  This will vary depending on the size of the publication but is generally around $120 AUD.  The minimum total fee for a single commissioned cartoon is $300.  For a quote contact the cartoonist. Or you can ring me on 61 428 157 618 to discuss.

the cartoon commissioning process

  • YOU SEND ME EITHER THE ARTICLE THE CARTOON IS TO ACCOMPANY OR A DETAILS OF THE ISSUE/STORY YOU WANT THE CARTOON TO ADDRESS.  YOU ALSO SEND THE DIMENTIONS OF THE HOLE THE CARTOON IS TO FIT IN

     

  • I WILL SUPPLY THREE OR FOUR THOUGH IDEAS OF THE CARTOON

    There is no obligation to chose a cartoon rough, if I cannot come up with something you like then we will go no further. There is no fee incurred for creating the roughs.

  • YOU CHOOSE THE CARTOON ROUGH YOU LIKE AND I WILL DRAW UP A FINISHED COPY
    Turnaround time from initial request to finished cartoon will vary depending on your response time and deadline, but it can be as little as a couple of days.

Note that commissioned cartoons remain the property of the cartoonist, what you are buying is the right to publish the article in a specific publication. The cartoonist retains the right to resell the cartoon to other publications, thought limited time exclusive rights can be negotiated.  However, it has been the experience of the cartoonist that most cartoons commissioned in this manner are so specific that they are rarely resold.
