Hello, I’m setting up as an illustrator and eco clothing designer and will be listing my spring/summer children’s clothing collection next year, but in the mean time I’m thinking of taking commissions, but my question is how does this actually work? Do I ask for money up-front, or part-payment? Or do you only ask for payment once the piece is finished?
I’ve only recently decided to focus on children’s clothing, and on my website I give examples of women’s clothes I’ve made - do you think it’s ok to keep these examples up whilst I work on my children’s collection, and should I be clearer on my website/facebook?
here is my website: https://hanna-mae-illustration.org/
and here is my fb: https://www.facebook.com/hannamaeillustration
Can anyone recommend any useful books? I’d really appreciate any help.
