I’ve got a new project involving updates to a coloring book, and I’m uncertain about how to estimate part of it. They want several new pages added.
To create the new pages, I’ll need to drive to a local location, take some reference photos and then create the pages by sketching and Illustrator.
The photographs will only be for reference for the artwork, so that I can draw it accurately. So should I include time getting the photographs in the estimate? Or should I treat it as non-billable expense?
