COMMISSION AN ARTWORK
If you're interested in hiring me to do a commission, prices are determined by a variety of factors, but it starts with...
SIZE: Anything fitting within 9x13 starts at $500. Anything going from there up to 13x19 starts at $750. And anything from there up to 16x22 starts at $1000.
The price could then go up more depending on...
COMPLEXITY: Is the painting based on photo reference exclusively or are you looking for a completely original image that I’m to design and draw first? Maybe something in between? Will it be background heavy? Those are the types of factors that could raise the price and how much they raise it will vary depending on what is being requested. Then...
TIME: This is already an aspect of the previous mentioned factors. I mean, the larger and/or the more complex the image, and/or preliminary drawing needed all affects the amount of time it will take me to produce the illustration. But also, if you need the piece quickly or by a specific time, that could have an effect on my schedule and require some extra compensation.
Once I have all the pertinent information, before you need to commit to anything, I’ll give you a quote along with a purchase agreement detailing what it is I’m going to create and for how much. Then, when all is settled and we’re both on the same page, I’ll ask you to sign the form and a non-refundable deposit of 50% is required before any work begins. The balance will be due upon completion of the piece, which I will only ship after I have received it.
I accept: cash, check, or PayPal
There are no returns, but you can cancel the project at any time without owing the second half of payment – just understand, you will not receive the final piece if that happens.
For commissions, I ship via UPS ground to the 48 contiguous United States, which is figured into the original quote. However, if you live outside the contiguous US, need expedited shipping, or just want a different shipping method used, other arrangements can be made * BUT * it will mean an additional charge of whatever that shipping cost turns out to be.
I will retain the copyright to the commissioned piece, including all reproduction rights and the right to claim statutory copyright. And I will keep a scan of the finished piece for my own records. That said, I will not share the image on my website or other social media without your permission - which will be noted on the form mentioned above.
