Commissions

COMMISSION STATUS: OPEN

I've started doing commissions, to see how far I can take this before I get too busy. Being on this site, you can see my drawing style, composition preferences and subject matter. If you are interested in an original piece of art, based on my style, you've come to the right place.

Here are my rates:
$70 each - 9”x12” original analog art work 
OR 
$35 each -  8.5”x11” reproduction (or digital copy) 

Terms: 
Deposit - 50% of agreed rates

Information about the art: 
  • I work analog - this means pen and ink on paper. Only minor adjustments can be made to final art.
  • Analog art isn’t perfect - Part of the charm and expectation of handmade work is having subtle flaws in the lines that are unique to that specific piece. 
  • Portraits - I do not make photo-perfect representations of people, but rather stylized caricatures that represent the subjects. If you want photo-perfect, take a photo or select another artist.

Information on commissions: 
  • What you are paying for: Your commission fee is based on services rendered and not product. 
  • Art is subjective, but art style is not. Your commission is based on the knowledge that you are aware of my artistic style and expectations are set to that.
  • Timing: Although I will work to get your piece finished in a timely manner, I cannot commit to a rigid timeline.
  • Delivery: is typically in person, but if you would prefer shipment, additional fees my apply. 

Information about ownership and copyright of commissioned art: 
  • If you commission Original Art - You will be the owner of the art. No other reproductions will be sold, without your permission. However, I retain the right share this work for self-promotion.
  • If you commission Reproduced Art (print or digital) - I will be the owner of the original art. I retain the right to sell the original. No other reproductions will be made or sold without your permission. I retain the right share this work for self-promotion.
  • Your rights - you are welcome to make copies of and share your original art (or reproduction/digital) for free. However, you are not allowed to reproduce copies for retail sales or profit, without new terms. 
  • All my work is licensed under a Creative Commons: Attribution-NonCommerical-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon my work non-commercially, as long as they credit me and license their new creations under the identical terms.

Examples of previous commissions:








Just so that there is no confusion in the process, I’ve created a quick run down of what to expect and steps working with me:

  1. Discussion of commission subject 
  2. Agreement to work 
  3. Agreement to terms of this commission (see above)
  4. Deposit - 50% of agreed terms (Cash, PayPal, or Vemeo - payment options on request)
  5. Rough concept sketches made. I will generate a couple of rough compositions for the client to select and approve.
  6. Rough concept art to the client. 
    • If approved - I move forward with making final art - at this point, deposit not refundable 
    • If NOT approved - I will make one set of revisions based on the client's feedback
  7. If second round of rough concepts required, it will be submitted to the client for approval
    • If approved - I move forward with making final art - at this point, deposit not refundable 
    • If NOT approved - we can discuss next steps
  8. Final art made
  9. Final art submitted to the client for approval.
    • If approved - I move forward with delivering final art - at this point, payment balance due
    • If NOT approved - I will make limited revisions based on your feedback. Repeat step 9.
