Popular questions

These are questions I get asked often on instagram and in email about me and my work. For questions specific to the Portfolio Masterclass visit this link.

Manelle: Rhymes with Michelle or Janelle.

Oliphant: Is said like elephant with AHH!

Currently I’m not open for general commissions, but you’re a publisher looking to hire me for a publishing project please contact my agent, Adria Goetz of P.S. Literary at adria@psliterary.com.

If you’ve written a children’s book it’s important to know your options.

  • If you want to publish it traditionally please know that the publisher, not the author, will pick and pay for the illustrator. Once a publisher purchases your book they will want your book to be as amazing as you do. Publishers are great at matching manuscripts to illustrators. If you’re a publisher looking for an illustrator you can contact my agent Adria Goetz at adria@psliterary.com
  • If you’re looking to self-publish your book, remember they are time and labor-intensive. Look at your project and calculate how many hours it will take to create the illustrations for it. Determine the budget for your project based on a fair hourly rate. Don’t forget to include taxes, the cost of supplies, etc. in your calculations. This will give you a good idea of how much it may cost. You can always ask an illustrator how long they think something will take them if you’re unsure. If you’re interested in having me illustrate for you please email me the details of your project including the size and number of illustrations, and their complexity, (Are they in color or black and white? Do they have a full background? How many characters?) and an estimated timeline for your project. Then I can determine if the project is right for me and get back to you.

I love helping new artists and giving them feedback. But I’ve learned it’s also important for me to organize and protect the time I have for work and for the other aspects of my life. So currently the best way to work with me is through the critique group and live calls inside the Illustration Portfolio Masterclass.

When my schedule allows I love speaking and doing interviews. Email me the details of your event and we’ll see what we can work out.

I’m happy to answer questions about supplies. I do believe that the supplies an artist uses is important. So I’ve made a comprehensive list and you can see it here.

Email me the details of your project, in many cases, you may be able to purchase the rights to use my illustrations for specific things.
