About This Gig

Hello! My name is Embla.
In this gig I offer hand made illustrations for children in watercolor and ink

Every project is different, and many falls in between the offered packages. Also I give volume discounts on orders of many pictures. So to make sure you get the right price:
Please contact me before ordering! 
I will make you a few sketches for free, so you can be sure I'm the right artist for the job, before you have to order anything.

I want a close collaboration with the author, and together find the right style and mood for the story. I am here to advice you as far as I am able.

Some practical info:
  • I charge for the commercial use licence.
  • I must be credited by name in the book.
  • Digital editing is possible, but will not happen unless discussed first.
  • Pictures are scanned in print friendly 300 dpi, delivered as JPG-files.

To see my portfolio, you can go here:

Looking forward to painting for you!

Embla Ester Granqvist

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are the prices negotiable?
    Well, yes. I base my prices on the time it takes to complete an illustration, so it's of course possible to get the price down, simply by leaving out some details. If economy is tight, tell me your budget and I can advice you on how to get a good picture out of little money.
  • Do I need to buy the commercial use licence for every single illustration?
    No. If you need more than five illustrations, we'll discuss the price for the commercial use licence. It will depend more on the actual illustrations, rather than the amount of them.
  • Is it possible to get the illustration faster?
    Yes. I do not have a "rush-fee", as it's hard to say exactly how long a project is going to take, with all the pre-sketching. But if you're in a hurry, let me know and we'll figure something out.
  • Can you imitate another style?
    I am able to imitate other styles, but I prefer not to. Reference pictures are very welcome, to help me understand what it is that you're looking for. I am happy to take inspiration from other styles and put it together with my own, but I will not be plagiarizing.
  • Can you make a sample first?
    I do not make free samples. However, i spend a lot of time making sketches before an order even starts, to make sure you're happy with the result. If you have a big project, and you feel like the sketches is not enough. We can come to an agreement about a cheaper price for your first illustration.
