This page is called premades because that’s what all the cool kids are calling them these days!
But really, this is where a lot of my personal projects, brain blasts, and fun stuff end up. Some are full ebook covers with text. Some are illustrations, in book cover format or otherwise. Need a book or album cover or website banner? Read on for specifics, because I’m doing things a bit differently:
Everything on this page has no price attached, because your time and my time are equally valuable. Which is to say, I don’t think anyone should be judged worthy to have cool things or not based on their current income or circumstances.
I get great joy in the making of this art. It makes me happy when someone sees my art and knows it will be the perfect thing for their project. It also makes me happy when price is not a barrier to having amazing art for the amazing project you’ve made. We’re all in this together, right?
A few guidelines:
If you see something you love, quote me a price that feels good to you. Don’t sweat the price. I won’t be offended if a low price is what you can afford. I’ll also love if you have extra budget to spare, because I appreciate any and all support—but these two things are equally valuable to me. You don’t need to tell me your circumstances or why this is what you can afford or even why you can afford to quote higher; I’ve had to do that before, and I think humanity is better than that. Let’s take worrying about money out of the equation in our quest to make great things. I trust you.
Some of these illustrations were born out of me making art tutorials (which I sometimes sell), and some I sell as art prints or feature in Youtube speed art videos, or use as my website banners or promotional images for my art business. This does not affect your cover exclusivity! Any piece I sell as exclusive to a cover will never be sold to anyone else as a cover.
Illustrations without text don’t come with any extras or adjustments on my part—they’re licensed as illustrations only. You’ll need to drop in text yourself, kidnap (well, not literally) another designer for text or a paperback wrap, or use an awesome free design app like Canva.
I don’t barter services for services. I’ve found this usually ends up feeling unbalanced, and I want everyone to feel their work and time is equally valuable. Because, you know, it is! As are you. <3
I DO trade—stacks of comics, comic paperbacks or hardcovers, geeky things, cool tech stuff you’re not using anymore, gift cards you’re not using…basically, if you think it’s something I might be interested in, toss it out there! You never know. If you’re quoting a straight trade, listing a few different trade-able things to choose from would be a good idea, and we can go from there.
I don’t take payment plans. I’d rather you quote an amount you can afford (and that doesn’t put you into hardship!) than try to figure out a plan that may or may not work out. If you think what it’s worth is too much for you to afford—seriously, try me. We’ll work it out. (Also, see trades above!)
If not having numbers to go on makes you nervous, no worries! I totally understand. If you’d like me to send you a general price range on a piece, just let me know.
You are amazing. Did you know that? I think I’m pretty amazing, too, because we all are. If that sounds good to you, I think we’re on the same page. Have a look at the art below and let me know if anything catches your eye! My email is at the bottom of the page, or you can contact me through my contact page. Please download and attach the image you’d like, or take a screenshot and attach that, or list its name in your email (but pics are easier!).
