7/29/2019 15:34:27New York Times (Styles)Editorial- Web header$350.00YesYesYes2018Was paid on-time through their payment portal, which was kind of annoying but mostly because it was a nebulous series of grey windows I couldn't figure out. I got it all solved, but was still a bit stressful...
7/29/2019 15:36:50Dance Club in GreenpointPoster$500.00NoKind of, but late... I had to circle back once or twice, but I was sent a checkNo2018I was warned beforehand they would not pay great from a few people who worked there, but it was seen as a cool job so I took it. I basically didn't have to do any edits and delivered a final first round. Kind of a toss-up on this one.
7/29/2019 15:39:09The Creative IndependentEditorial - Web Header and spots$350.00YesYesYes2018Was relatively low-key job, but think it could have been atleast $500 for the header +5 spots. To compensate for the low rate I just did really simple work, which in retrospect I don't really like anymore -- but I try to be realistic with the amount of work I can do for certain rates. But I have not been hired by them again, maybe in part to the simplicity of my work. Or maybe because of their publishing model. It's hard to be sure! I'm sure other freelancers can relate to this anxiety.
7/29/2019 15:42:15an Independent Artist NewspaperEditorial- Print Magazine Cover$500.00NoYes2018It was for an independently-run newspaper and done on a very low-key basis, so $500 felt pretty fair as a rate.

Has occurred over about a 4-month period.

8/5/2019 11:57:59Robert J Woods FoundationSeries of 10 narrative illustrations (not quite a comic) for their website and social media. $5,000A standard contract stating deliverables, payment, scope of project, etc. NoNo2019Their producer reached out to me to tell me I underbid myself and suggested I raise my quote to $5000, so I will forever be grateful to her for sticking out her neck for me. That being said, the timeline for this project was short and ultimately they prolonged the timeline because they needed more time to give feedback with their higher ups. The same producer told me to reach out to her if I haven't received a payment within 30 days while explaining sometimes they pay net 60. In my contract, it said payment was expected 60 days after my invoice was submitted. It's been well past 30 days and I have not been able to get in contact with the producer or their accounting department.
8/5/2019 12:05:47BuzzfeedEditorial- Web header$500.00NoYesNo2017I was not paid 30 after sending my invoice but when I contacted the art director, he immediately responded and the matter was resolved quickly. I was paid a few days after that. Overall a good experience working for them.

10/30/2019 16:19:44De CorrespondentEditorial- Web header1000 euros for 5 headersNoNot yetOn the 30th day, they said they'll process the check.2019Red flags:
1. Ignored my reminders and paid after 30 days even though they said they "always strive to pay within two weeks after receiving the invoice". So they didn't agree to my 10% interest rate for every 30 days missed. Peer who got commissioned from them said they ignored their emails and didn't pay until after 3 months.
2. Wouldn't send or sign my contract. They see email as a "better and more efficient way" of agreement. Felt okay about it at the time until they didn't pay.
3. I told AD it'll take me a certain amount of days over the weekend to make revisions. AD said "sorry, it shouldn't take you that long". Didn't respond even after I responded in 15 minutes with the quickest revision I could make. Following Monday, told me they didn't want to work with me again (go figure)
4. All 5 articles were in Dutch, which I can't understand. They told me to just Google Translate, which took forever because the text was formatted in a way that doesn't copy/paste well. Took more than hour to do.

Didn't receive it by then either, had to email them many many times (most of them they never replied to), eventually I was paid 10 months after finishing the job. Horrible experience!!

8/20/2020 13:45:10The New YorkerComic strip / Shouts & Murmurs submission (basically their gags/funnies section of the website)$400Technically, yes! However I was able to re-negotiate and that allowed for me to retain copyright. They now instead use an exclusivity clause.YesYes2020This was my VERY first job with the New Yorker and ultimately it was a wonderful experience! I got the job after Emma Allen reached out to me to contribute. The editors are great and willing to answer any questions you may have, as are the Conde Nast employees when it comes to the contract they have you sign. I HIGHLY recommend negotiating contracts with them, because that was the only way I managed to keep the copyright for the comics I pitch to them, and as of right now it's more of an exclusivity clause situation. HUGE personal win.

As some submitters mentioned previously, they do have you set up getting paid through their Conde Nast portal, and it can take up to 5 weeks for you to get paid. However, I received the invoice for my first submission about two weeks after the comic was published, and noticed that the invoice was drafted 5 days after publication. All in all, it took about 3 weeks for me to get paid, which is pretty tight!

3/25/2021 20:41:13Simon&schusterEditorial- Print Black and white$300NoYesYes2021I was asked to illustrate the interiors of the book but was tested twice because the authors wanted samples. They brought me on because the original artist only had time to create the cover. We worked out a fee of $9250. They said they weren’t testing anyone else and that I wasn’t to copy the og artists style and to draw it in my own style. I did a full spread page. They came back and said they needed a another sample this time paying me $300 extra added on the the original fee or I walk away with that fee if I’m not approved. I did a spread of two separate pages this time. I wasn’t approved in the end and they said they have decided to find someone who could copy the og artists style.
The art director was very nice and seemed to enjoy my work. I was also told the team there enjoyed it so I feel like they just didn’t have the okay from the authors of having a different artist and I was in the middle of something weird?

5/13/2021 0:53:05MacmillanAdvance for Graphic Novel - Major Publisher$50,000NoPayout will be in thirds: first upon contract signing, second upon final art, third upon publication (~3 year timeline)Payout schedule has not started yet2020This graphic novel/comic is an #OwnVoices debut middle grade fantasy, and page length is approx 200 to 224 pages. Although some imprints at Macmillan can do letters, mine does not. If I want a letterer or colorist, I will hire them independently with money from my advance.

My agent increased the advance and negotiated other deal terms (payout schedule shortened, royalties increased), and they will take 15% commission from this deal. I would not have been able to navigate the contract without my agent, and I think being represented by an agent is invaluable.

We asked about payment methods in December 2020 when we were approached for the project, signed contracts in February after asking for over a month, and were ignored about payment/invoice requests until April, a full month after we finished work on the project. We were then told our payment turnaround would be 60 days from the time we signed up for the payment portal, so ended up being paid in mid-June for a project we worked until in February/March. Throughout the process our contact [name redacted by Litebox] repeatedly ignored emails from all 4 of us on the art team, and we weren't given any additional contacts to reach out to. Additionally, our colorist was asked to change coloring styles last-minute (halfway through the flatting process) and only stayed with the project after negotiating fair additional pay for the revisions.Their$25.50/pageNot ApplicableColor Flatting0-5 YearsUnited StatesWhiteYes please

1/7/2022 14:06:17Tor/MacmillanBook Cover4000NoYesNo2021I signed the contract and began work in April 2021. I was expected to be paid in June 2021 (deadline stated in contract), but the editor requested revision after revision (+5) and I didn't get paid for my work until November 2021. I had no choice, their contract didn't stipulate anything about revision times and I hadn't thought to request it at them time (won't happen again). The whole process was extremely lengthy, exhausting, and overall tedious, since a lot of the edits requested ruined the piece, in my opinion. The book's season also moved to a different one, which was unforeseen, but extended the time that I had to continue working on the edits requested, and ultimately to wait to be paid. The only silver lining was that once the invoice was received by their office, (which also took WAY longer than was needed, apparently my invoice was "hadn't been received" or "didn't get sent" and I had to remind the editor multiple times over several weeks that I still hadn't been paid even after sending the invoice), I was paid in 3 business days.

I am still waiting on a response from the author's admin, who I had been speaking with over the months. Responses come so infrequently and I have to email multiple times to even elicit one email. Communication is just really frustrating; I've been told that apparently the author wants edits to be made, (from an email I received in early December of 2021) but I still have yet to receive anything specifying that. No emails, no other responses, nothing. I periodically ask for updates from the author's admin, but she either ignores my emails for a time, or doesn't care to respond in a helpful manner. I have absolutely no clue what is happening over there, and I am starting to doubt that I'll be paid at all, or that the project will continue. HerAustraliaEast AsianYes please

8/7/2023 5:16:52The Quarto GroupBook Cover with InteriorsApprox $3500YesYesYes2021The pay was terrible and I tried negotiating more but it was like pulling teeth. Their UK imprints pay much less than the US imprints from what I've gathered, and I think the UK imprints do not do royalties. On the plus side, they were easy to work with and didn't have too many edits. The other different thing about this project was they provided the sketches, so I wasn't the one coming up with the layout at all.Her$200Only drew art10-15 yearsUKWhiteYes pleaseunite
