I hope this email finds you well.
I put 10 down on this project because I have to put an amount in to talk with you. I am following up with you on the children's illustration contest.
I would like to discuss your interst and costs for illustrating the attached story. I would like to know your cost for one picture and the cost for the book. If it is within my price range I would like to start with one picture of the concept and if it suits the story then move from there. I did like your illustration of the little guy it's just that the missing piece was how it went along with the story. Please advise me of these things. I know you were not certain how to set the price but you could look at how long it takes you and what your hourly rate is. Please advise. thank you
