Graphic Art for Web Presentation

Web graphics require "edge," yet must be highly compressed for reasonable load. My specialty is high-end static web graphics. I enjoy doing them, but will often refuse projects because:

  • the potential client wants artwork way outside my style
  • the graphic content requested or the website it will go on violates my moral and ethical principles
  • I'm already booked up with projects

When I'll do it no matter how busy I am, and sometimes do it "pro bono":

  • if it is for a cause I embrace (preservation of Earth, trees, help for animals, anti-cruelty, anti-war....)

If you want to know if I'll help you, your best bet is to ask me using my main contact form.

Titles and Illustrations for articles, web pages, stories, columns -- graphic art intended strictly for Internet Publication

Illustrating is an art unto itself. The art has to match the tone and character of the work. Either the artist is given specific instructions from the author or the publisher, or they are given a free hand because the publisher or author likes their style and trusts them. To illustrate the piece, the artist usually has to read it. This generates impressions which then allows the artist to conceive and initiate an illustrative graphic. Once completed, the artist sends proofs to the publisher and/or author. Everything is subject to the proofs being approved, of course.

Illustrations start at $120 each, usually cost around $300 each. Graphic usually run in size ratios of 1x1, 1x2/2x1, 1x3/3x1, 1x4/4x1, 2x3/3x2, 3x4/4x3, 72dpi, 800 pixels or less in width. Compressions formats include .jpg, .gif, and .png if requested.


 

 

Ads -- banners and tiles

Tile and banner ads use preset dimensions. Advertising stills comprise the majority of low and middle end advertising on the Internet, but that is swiftly changing. Many advertisers are using Flash and video presentations. If that's what you want, I suggest you go find a service that specializes in Flash and videos. I don't.
