Illustration Licence

TR.IP.04
This Illustration Licence between an artist / illustrator and a publisher covers the creation of new illustrations for inclusion in a published work.

The terms of this licence assume that the work will be split into two phases, that is, two sets of deliverables – roughs and finals – each phase requiring the approval of the publisher. In each case, provision is made for an instalment of the final fee to be paid on approval.

It is important to note that the illustrator only licenses the illustrations to the publisher under this agreement – they are not assigned. The licence can be exclusive or non-exclusive.

Further provisions in this template address factors such as warranties and indemnity, obligations, cancellation, confidentiality and the all-important moral rights, which are asserted by the illustrator – requiring the publisher to identify the illustrator as the creator of the illustrations.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
