Commission Information

The prices below refer to pieces created for personal use/free distribution, including samples to be used in project pitches.  For work that's intended to be published and sold, whether in print or as a digital file, email me at rachel_ordway@yahoo.com to discuss the price based on the project.

I’ll update my availability depending on my schedule and will post on social media when I do.  See my "About" page for links to all my current social media pages.

Open:
  • Comic lettering
  • Illustrations for publication, anthologies, or pitches
  • Comic art for publication, anthologies, or pitches
Closed (please don’t ask):
  • Illustrations for personal use
  • Comic art for personal use
Please contact me by email (rachel_ordway@yahoo.com)

Payment is up front.  Either the full amount up front, or half up front and the rest when it’s finished. I accept Paypal, credit card, or mailed checks/money orders.

I reserve the right to charge extra based on the complexity of the project.  This is at my sole discretion and on a project-by-project basis; feel free to ask me if you’re not sure.

No adults-only material (nudity, sexual content, gore, or drug use).

Non-human characters are fine, but I may charge extra for particularly complex or difficult designs.


Comic Commissions

Sample images can be found in my Comics gallery.

Prices include lettering.  Inquire about logos. For just lettering (on someone else's art): $15/page, or less if the art already contains word balloons and/or sound effects.

Samples of my lettering on others' art can be found in my Lettering gallery.
