How can I find an artist for hire?

Most artists/illustrators who are available for projects list their services on freelance sites like Toptal, Guru, Upwork, and Freelancer. If you post a job in the illustration category on one of these sites, illustrators will apply and you will be able to interview them.

Is it better to use a freelance artist-for-hire or to hire a permanent employee?

Most businesses use freelance illustrators for their projects because they do not need illustration work to be done every single day. However, some creative fields may require full-time illustrators. In that case, it would make sense to hire someone as a permanent employee rather than as a freelancer.

What are some important tips to hire an illustrator?

  • Ask to see that illustrator's portfolio. An illustration is entirely visual, so you will find out very quickly whether or not you like the artist's style by viewing some of their work.
  • Negotiate with an illustrator to get an agreeable rate. If you're working with a freelancer, their prices aren't necessarily fixed and they will give you a better price if they feel that your project is a good opportunity for them to showcase their skills.
  • Before the project or job begins, be very clear about your expectations.
