in an office, with staff and overheads and bills and gst and tax, i'd guess a charge out of about $65-75/hr

You must have an idea of how long they take?  or a ballpark maximum amount of time?  take that and times by 65 for each illustration.  otherwise, I don't see how anybody here would have an idea

perhaps have a look at meetup.com and see if there's a local group of peeps doing what you do and join and ask some of them, meetup.com is a good networking site

Or check to see the range that people bid to do illustrations on sites like elance or freelancer.co.nz. Of course a lot of those places are dirt cheap but it gives you an idea
Depends what your time is worth and how long you think it will take
