Setting a fair and ethical price for artwork in self publishing

A big part of self publishing a picture book is finding an illustrator. I’ll teach an easy and practical formula for authors and illustrators to demystify how much it costs and why. This discussion will help set an illustration budget for self published authors, while giving new or struggling illustrators the tools to advocate for a fair price.
