Art Available For Purchase
Illustration Commission Services
Eight years into this job and I still love everything I get to do.
I rarely have a waiting list but if I do it'll only be for a couple of weeks and it will probably be over the summer due to cons.
What things to people hire me to draw?
Mostly portraits of people (real or imagined) in emotive moments.
Often art of animals, sometimes scenery, or objects as gifts.
Sometimes covers for books or posters for films.
Occasionally live paintings of an event (wedding, birthday, etc.)
My job is to capture something for you in an energetic, vivid, and evocative way that a camera just doesn't do. The reason artists like me even have a place in the world with cameras and software being what they are now is because I can target in on a feeling and add or subject from a scene as I build to get there. A camera can only work with what is there. I can find a impart so much more.
It's tricky for art because it's variable based on a lot of factors.
The easiest things I can give you for reference are this.
Artwork of one person, simple background, full color would cost you:
$75 for a large postcard, $110 for a page, $180 for a poster.
It's a lot more nuanced with that with multiple people or specific places but that's a easy point of reference.
Art Creation Stages:
Step 0 : (30m the chat)
We lay out what you want, what it costs, and if I can fulfill it.
Step 1 : Sketches
You pay. I sketch roughs. You approve or change the direction.
Step 2 : Final draft
I create a final clean sketch. You approve or change details.
Step 3 : Inks
I ink line art. You approve unless something went very wrong.
Step 4 : Delivery
Very minor changes can be made but at this point it's it.
If you need me to travel, you'll have to provide it and feed me.
