Commission faqs

Are Commissions Currently Open? 

Unfortunately, commissions are closed until January 1, 2021, but I'm accepting projects for 2021 so please email me beforehand if you're interested. 

Is there a deposit? 

Yes, a 50% non-refundable deposit is due before the project can begin. This deposit also confirms your start date. 

What's the basic process? 

First, we discuss the parameters of the illustration. The more information provided, the more accurate the quote will be. Once we come to an understanding of the project and timeline, an estimate is made and approved. Next, the deposit must be paid and sketches are sent which will be adjusted according to the notes received. The final illustrations are created with up to ONE minor round of revisions. The final payment is due once the final illustrations are approved. 

What format do you send the artwork?

Typically JPEG or PNG unless you request another format. PSD files are only sent when agreed upon up front. 

What size is the portrait? 
Commissions are typically printed either 8"x10" or 16"x20" by request depending on what you want. If you want it larger, please let me know ahead of time or it can't be changed. 

What do you usually need to get started? 

The more information, the better. Here's a list of helpful information: 

- Reference photos

- Any specific distinguishing features 

- Any color preferences. 

Do you have a price list? 

Nope. Portrait commissions start at $150 but range depending on what's requested.
