TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Suppose I want to pay someone to draw one or more mathematical/scientific diagrams for a paper or book using TikZ, Asymptote, PSTricks, Sketch, MetaPost, or another TeX-friendly system. Preferably, I should be able to make small changes myself, and possibly even use the commissioned code as a learning tool.

What options are available? What sort of costs are considered reasonable?

Motivation: For one thing, it might be useful to refer people to this question when they ask "draw-it-for-me" types of questions.

Important note: Answers should describe an existing service or advertisement, or else give evidence that no such service exists. This question is not intended to solicit bids (or, for that matter, as a place for advertisement, unless you happen to already offer such a service).

Just my observation: I don't think you need this service. :-) :D –  Paul Gessler Jun 29 '14 at 1:26
Not entirely sure this is on topic... Maybe there should be somewhere for people to describe projects and solicit bids... or for people to advertise their services... Completely agree with @PaulGessler's comment but perhaps you are in need of cash yourself ;)? –  cfr Jun 29 '14 at 1:28

Maybe this question is better addressed in META? –  Mario S. E. Jun 29 '14 at 1:40
But it is not really about the site either, is it? –  cfr Jun 29 '14 at 1:51
