How Ordering Works
1) Message me your idea! Feel free to be as weird or sentimental as you want! We can also brainstorm together, but try to sum it up with a few short sentences. Defining a beginning, middle, and end helps.
2) Custom flipbook prices vary based on complexity, deadline, and number of scenes needed. They range from $895 and up for a story-based version with color & more scenes (like this). Due to demand, time-needed, & physical limitations, higher budgets may get priority. Each book is a hand-drawn original, so this is the best I can offer right now. Prices for commercial work also vary, so just send a message.
(Don't have money but have a crazy unique item or experience to trade? I'm open to fun stuff like that...try me!)
3) Once we agree on a plan/price, I'll email over some rough sketches for your approval. When you give the OK, I'll set up a custom invoice for you to order.
4) Upon payment, I'll ask for reference photos and keep you posted on any progress as the animation comes together. Orders can take 1-3 months depending on backlog, (with rush available at an added cost) so please order early. The earlier you can put your order in, the more likely I will be able to make it.
Don't have any ideas?
The best flipbooks tend to have a beginning, middle, and end...which gives it more of a 'complete story' feel...so please try to think in those terms. If you can describe each part in one sentence...the more easily it will be understood. I can sprinkle in smaller details as well once we have a main story.
Most flipbooks include some of the following: first date/special relationship moments, inside jokes, nicknames, wacky stories/adventures, morphing someone into another person or object, a condensed movie or tv scene, animated song lyrics or phrases, likes/dislikes. Having a title in mind, or a written message you want to convey can also help guide the animation. If that doesn't work, try taking a look at the video section to spark some ideas.
I love hearing the sweet and unique concepts people come up with, so come on and send a message.
