So you want to commission a piece of art?
What, I don’t have anything available that tickles your fancy?
What you need to know.
I do it my way. I will use my artist license to create my vision of what you request. Hopefully, it matches your expectations.
It won’t be cheap. There will be a non-refundable downpayment to begin and a final price for the finished work.
I don’t always accept commissions. this is an application process. You see in the past, they have been a bit difficult. It’s not easy to create something for someone when you can’t read their mind and envision what they expect. However every now and then it can be stimulating to work on an idea from a fan. If you’re asking me to paint a picture of your family or dog and expect to get some realistic renaissance style portrait to hang on your wall then forget it. That’s just not what I do.
I’ll do it when it feels right. I am busy with the many facets of my life and don’t always have time to create. Also, I am not always in the mood. Deadlines can be helpful but they can also apply pressure and hinder true creative freedom.
So here’s how it works:
- Review my work on this site and find a few examples of my art that best matches your vision.
- Apply for consideration by filling out our contact form with the list from step 1 and a detailed description of what you would like. This should include size, colors, subject, budget, and anything else you can think of.
- Your request will be reviewed and a response will be sent.
- If accepted, you must make a non-refundable downpayment of at least $50 before any work is started. This amount will vary depending on the size and scope of your request.
- Once the down payment is received, an initial sketch will be created and sent for approval. Upon approval, the production of your artwork will begin.
- When completed, an image of the final piece will be sent to you with the final price of the completed work. The completed work will be shipped to you once payment in full is received. Including any shipping and handling costs.
If you are not satisfied with the final piece, we can try to work out some changes. In the event that a resolution can’t be reached, the contract is complete and you are not required to make the final payment. However, you will not receive the art or your downpayment. The artwork will remain mine, to do with how I please.
