It's hard to say what to quote without knowing more about what's involved in the
illustrations. But if your friend can get $55/hr., seems to me like he's doing
Quoting Britt Griswold <[log in to unmask]>:
> A friend of mine has just been asked to price a job to produce 290
> illustrations for a physical science college textbook, with a 6 month
> work window. He is new to this and really has no clue where to start
> with figuring the amount to ask for. This is for major textbook
> publisher. He has done a few illustrations for them already piecmeal
> at $55/hr, so they must like the results so far.
> Any sort of pricing and contract pointers for a large hunk of work,
> from those who have been there would be apreciated. He wants to price
> competatively but not lowball or undercut the market.
> I have my own opinions, but I think more points of view are needed to
> get a realistic idea of how to approach this.
