Maybe you’ve looked through my portfolio and thought, “Hey, I’d love to see a drawing of ____________(figure, building, scene, etc.)! I wonder if she does commissions?” Yes, on a limited basis, I do.
Below I’ve listed some of things for you to consider. If any of the options appeal to you, contact me to discuss your plan!
Where do you start?
For commissions using a photo as a source material:
Find a high quality photo of your subject. More than one is even better!
Decide if you are looking for a digital file for internet use or digital artwork printed on archival art paper.
Decide on the final image size you would like.
Common print sizes (others may be available upon request):
8”x10”, 11”x14”, 16”x20” are common sizes for digital art prints (Range $250-1,200+)
Know your budget and timeline
Your budget may help you determine the size and what additional options for matting and framing you wish to choose for your final product.
The complexity of your subject will affect pricing. For example, a portrait of a child is very different than a family portrait of five!
50% non-refundable deposit is required and 50% once artwork is received.
events & corporate commissions
Business owners and event organizers are “idea” people, right? Looking through my portfolio might spark an idea of how you could incorporate some digital art into your online or print promotions.
Another option could be to hire my capturing your live event in digital sketches available to document your special occasion. Digital files from the event could be used on social media or be made available as prints.
Some examples of art projects I have produced for organizations include:
Live digital sketches from various music performances.
Live digital sketches to highlight group trip in various settings.
Boxing series of paintings were created for window exhibit to attract consumers into a “Fight Shop” business in Las Vegas, NV.
Series of entertainment icons were painted for exhibit to highlight the glamour of a top salon in Las Vegas, NV.
Live painting of large 7’x4’ paintings were created and displayed at several public Las Vegas events. The subjects of the paintings were designed to complement the site in which they were created (ex. Large scene of children playing on monkey bars was created at a summer festival attracting families to observe its development).
Currently producing a series of Bowie Baysox baseball players to celebrate its team’s 25th season. Upcoming exhibit atBaysox/Prince George’s Stadium in Spring 2017.
Where do you start?
A basic idea is all you need. Are you thinking of a temporary exhibit of paintings or prints to complement your business or event? Are you thinking the addition of live digital drawing might be of interest for your event?
Contact me to further discuss your idea.
Rates can vary depending on the scope of the project.
If paintings/prints are available for sale at your business/event, there may be minimal to no cost applied to you.
Permanent commissioned works of art would follow the same guidelines as individual commissions with a 50% deposit and 50% upon completion with an agreed upon timeline.
Once the project is defined, a timeline will be agreed upon along with any attached costs.
I really enjoy collaborations as much as independent projects and look forward to hearing your ideas!
