How far in advance are you booked and what is your turnaround time?

For now, I'm full of work until june 14th.
About my timework is around 2/3 weeks. (depend from the complexity of the cover)

Excellent work! I am also very glad you listed pricing. A lot of artists will visit and are reluctant to state even a base price (some say they think it is a bit gauche). Yet I know authors will often over estimate the base price based on quality (ETA and thus never inquire because they think they cannot afford the artist). Those are excellent starting prices and it is great that you also offer the typography services.

Thanks Dana. I think the price of an author is influenced by several factors. (experience, quality, artist's name, etc.)
What I always do is to make a correct price for me and the needs of the clients. For my experience, everything has its price. :)

    Nice work! You're a little pricier than my current artist. And I'm committed to give her all my fantasy series for continuity's sake, but I've bookmarked this for some of my other projects. (If I ever get around to finishing them!)


    Book 1 of the Deathsworn Arc 'Deathsworn Arc: The Last Dragon Slayer' is FREE to download!

    Very impressive stuff. I like!

    As an aside, would these kind of illustrated covers work well only in certain genres? I am thinking they would be best for fantasy, sci-fi, etc.  Or could an illustrated cover like this work well in other genres?

    First of all, thanks! :D

    About your question: I think that a good illustration, with a great aesthetic, usually works fine with virtually anything.
    Certainly, it is of crucial importance to understand which style is the best for a particular work, based on its literary genre and the type of audience that will buy it. :)
    For example, I really would like to illustrate a historical book, perhaps on ancient Greece! For this reason, obviously, I would tend to a "classic" style rather than a modern style.

    Alberto did a wonderful job on an illustrated urban fantasy cover - great communication, followed all instructions, and came up with something unique and eye-catching that still captured the genre. Highly recommended.

    Hi :)

    Alberto is great to work with, he has a unique vision of how things work together. Also, he can handle a nitpicky client (me!). ;)
    Recommended a thousand times, will work with him again on the next cover of the series. :)

    Excellent work Alberto

    I think I can probably find you some additional work as a concept artist in the realm of film production. I'll track you down on facebook and message you there, as all in contacts in that business are on that social media rather than here.

    In fact, this "budget" is a little bit far from what I usually request, right now.

    I've been told that my signature is too long, so here is the BLUF. Don't click anything if you got here via Google. Your data is now theirs.

    No, I do not agree to the TOS. I didn't sign up under it and don't agree. Further, you don't own any of my stuff. Period. I'm overwriting and deleting it all, and I highly recommend you who are reading this do the same. Focus on that which gives good Google-Fu.
