Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Relatively untried employees who have fewer than five years of experience earn around $42K on average. People who have worked for five to 10 years can expect a higher median salary of $50K. Illustrators with Illustration skills with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $52K. Average wages for folks with more than 20 years of experience come out to around $66K.
