Illustrator Commissioner AgreementUPDATED

This Template is provided for use by freelance illustrators who are commissioned to create artwork for a client. The Illustrator Commissioner Agreement is a simple contract. Once all the details to be completed have been confirmed with the commissioner, it is best practice to send the Illustrator Commissioner Agreement to the client to confirm the commission before you start work on the commission, so both parties are aware of the terms from the beginning.

The Template is drafted in two parts. The first page contains details about the job and the licence granted to the client and the client’s customer (if the client has commissioned the illustrator for a job they are working on for one of their own clients). The second page contains standard terms and conditions.

We offer many other great resources where we explain illustration contracts in detail, show you how licences are written, guide you on how to get commissions and behave professionally, and much more. 

We also offer bespoke 1-1 advice on any contractual, commission or business enquiries illustrators may have.
