Here’s the next thing people want to pay me for: A finished hand drawn info-graphic.

Is it smart to use the $100 an hour price as a bare minimum?

Example: One gentleman who speaks regularly to large groups often uses analogy. He would like to give me some of his quotes and turn those into visuals. If he gives me “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” and I am going to sketch that it could take anywhere from ten minutes to forty five. Wouldn’t I just charge a flat fee of an hour?

I apologize if I’m asking too many questions. I’m a great sketch artist, but clearly do not have a grip on the business end of this gig.

Thanx everyone!
