Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience is an important factor influencing the compensation of Illustrators with Adobe Photoshop skills. The average worker who claims fewer than five years of experience earns around $40K. In contrast, however, individuals who report five to 10 years in this occupation see a much larger median of $52K. Illustrators with Adobe Photoshop skills claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $60K. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $66K on average.
