Can I commission (hire) you to make art for me?
In most cases yes! I take private and commercial commissions if the project fits with my current workload. I will take most commissions involving wildlife, nature, fantasy, steampunk,
pets, dragons, clockwork, and so forth. I do not do any X rated (adult) or gory work (but creepy is fine and fun!).
How long will it take? Most commissions involving one or two illustrations are finished 4-8 weeks (projects with many illustrations take longer).
Can you do fan art?
I will sometimes do "fan" or "parody" commissions, but it depends greatly on the content what it is based on and their intended use.
What mediums can I get? What about prints or shirts or playmats?
Commissions may be in pencil, ink, watercolor, or digital paint.
In many cases I can also provide prints, shirts, bags, playmats, mousepads, bookmarks, and even custom cards for your personal use (postcards, holiday cards etc).
Print costs are priced based on the printing cost at the time you commission me.
What does it cost (Personal)?
Personal commissions are are those for your own personal use not to be sold or reproduced for sale.
Pricing depends on how much time it will take me to create but these usually fall into the $45-$125 USD range (plus any additonal printing or shipping costs).
What does it cost (Commercial)?
Commercial commissions require a contract that specifically outlines how they will be used/sold and the rights you are purchasing. Exclusive rights are most expensive.
Prices start at $150 USD, but may be discounted depending on the rights (i.e. I can also sell prints or am getting something else in return) and number of images being commissioned.
How do I pay you?
Once we have discussed your commission and agreed on a price I will require half of the amount up front (for large commerical commissions we may work out installments).
When the work is completed I will send you a low-res picture of the commission and then mail it or provide the high-res digital copy
once the remainder of the payment has been made.
Payments may be made via paypal, credit card, check, or wire transfer.
Okay, I want hire you! Now what? If it is personal or commerical work you want done
What size and medium you want (i.e. watercolor, ink, pencil, or digital) you want.
What you want (a short paragraph is fine to start with).
