#20 Eleanor Davis: Saying No To Bad Contracts (recovered)


Thank you for joining me today on this value-packed episode. We’re back with the Design Special: Meet The Cartoonists.

I’m joined by illustrator and Cartoonist Eleanor Davis. Eleanor is the author of the New York Times Bestseller How To Be Happy; she has also written You and a Bike and a Road, and The Secret Science Alliance and the Copycat Crook. Her work has been included in five issues of Fantagraphics' anthology MOME as well as Houghton Mifflin's Best American Comics in 2008. Eleanor has won the Eisner Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer award, and her short story In our Eden won the gold medal from the society of illustrators.

In today’s episode, Eleanor gets honest about how she gets clients and how she works with Art Directors. You will learn about how to price your illustrations and what book you should refer to for pricing guidelines. She also warns you about what contracts you should not sign.
