Frequently Asked Questions

How do people use the illustrations that they buy? Clients include book publishers, web sites and blogs, brochures, posters and advertisements. Select an image to the right to see some real-world examples of how customers used Kathy’s illustrations.

Who owns the rights to the illustrations? The illustrations may be done as “work for hire” meaning that the client owns all rights to the art. If you don't require all rights to the art the price will be lower.

How much do the illustrations cost? Kathy tries her best to make every illustration affordable for the customer. She uses a sliding scale to bill for projects based on the type of project. For example, an educational project may be billed at at a lower rate than a corporate project. Discounts are available when the client orders more than two or three illustrations at the same time. Contact Kathy for a free estimate.

What file format are the illustrations? Most of the illustrations are vector art done in Adobe Illustrator. The files are saved as eps format and saved down to illustrator 8 file format in order to be compatible with most vector drawing programs such as Corel Draw.

What's a vector illustration? There are two very different types of graphics: vector and bitmap graphics. Bitmaps are made up a series of pixels in a grid and cannot be resized without losing quality. Vector Illustration software allows you to create drawings using lines and curves which can be easily edited by moving points, adjusting curves, and changing the colors of various objects. Vector illustrations, because they consist of points and objects rather than pixels, are resolution free. Unlike bitmapped images, they will always print at the highest resolution, giving you smooth fills and crisp lines no matter what size you print it.

What software do I need to edit the illustrations? The illustrations can be opened in Photoshop but you will need a vector drawing program to edit them. The illustrations can be edited in Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, Macromedia FreeHand, Deneba Canvas or other compatible vector drawing program.

What color space do the illustrations use? The illustrations are RGB but they can be changed to CMYK. You may see a slight shift in color when the illustration is converted from RGB to CMYK. RGB files tend to be brighter and are suitable for the web, video and many printers such as ink jet printers. CMYK is most often used for printing.

What size are the illustrations? The illustrations are resolution independent and are scalable without losing quality using a vector illustration program such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW.
