Should I charge this project hourly, or by salary?

I'm a designer and front-end web developer who has always charged hourly. I was just offered a great part-time opportunity (20hrs/week) which pays half a salary - less than I'd be paid hourly. Please help me negotiate.

I usually charge $100/hr, so that would be $8000/month for part-time. But the part-time job offered to me is $85,0000, and half that would be $42,500 which comes to $3,541 a month.
So, $8000/month vs. $3541/month.
Am I looking at this wrong, or should I ask for more? I'm happy to have the work, but if I did hourly jobs I could obviously make more money. It just happens that this is an interesting project. FWIW, I have about 15 years experience and am considered good at what I do in the field.
