drawing commissions

Commissioning a drawing can feel like a big step. Hopefully the following information will help you make the decision.

Photographs
Drawings are done from photographs which should be supplied in digital format, with a 300dpi resolution. Your photos can be in colour or black and white. Before confirming a commission I ask for 3-4 digital images so that I can get to know your pet and we can agree the image to be used for the drawing.

Size
Drawing size is A4 150gm cartridge paper. Your drawing will be a unique original and no prints will be made for sale on this site. If you would like your own personal prints, created at an additional fee, this can be arranged. The price for additional prints includes the high-quality professional scanning set-up fee charged to me by the printers; Giclée art printing on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm paper; and shipping costs.

Price
The price of the drawing is £150.00 which includes the cost of packing and shipping. Contact me for details of the additional cost for shipping outside of the UK. The cost of your drawing is payable once you are happy with the final digital image, which will be made available to you on the work in progress web page.

Unframed
Drawings are shipped unframed so you can arrange your own framing in a style to suit your requirements. Contact me if you would like me to have the drawing mounted and framed for you.

Shipping and Returns
I spend between 30 and 50 hours on each drawing and ship them within approximately 2-3 weeks from agreeing the commission. Please be patient... hopefully it will be worth the wait, but if you are not happy with the drawing it can be returned and any payment refunded, less shipping costs.

Examples
Examples of previous commissions can be viewed on the clients' portal. If there is anything more you want to know please contact me.
