    Pricing help.

    Hi, I was ask to do a comic book illustration for a t-shirt but don't really know how much to charge for it. I was in the line of $100 but since it is for a t-shirt i don't know if it changes at all.
    any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Are you getting a cut of the sales of the t-shirt or is it a one-off thing? Usually if there's going to be a print-run you should be getting a flat fee for the design and a small percentage from the sale of said t-shirts.

    Make sure you retain the rights to the imagery and that you only license it for use on the t-shirt and that things are in writing and clear.

    100$ sounds a little low, in my opinion.

    well, he is my girlfriend's cousin and i'm also doing small graphics for his shirt line, this is brand new he just lunched about two months ago.
    About the fee, I was thinking of doing that, about the flat fee and then a small share of the profits.

    It's a good idea to get a profit share, don't sell yourself short though just because he's
    your girlfriends' cousin. Your girlfriend is just a female with whom you've agreed to sleep
    with exclusively, that's it. Your art is your business venture. There's no reason that people
    should be getting a discount from you because they know or are related to your girl. I mean,
    in a week you breakup with your girlfriend and BOOM he's just another client.

    In other words, business is business. The more professional you handle it, the less trouble
    down the line.
