How to get your perfect commission:

  1. Provide visual references. Email me photos of your subject(s). If you want a specific hairstyle, outfit, or accessories, send me visuals and describe exactly what you’re looking for. If you’re choosing a Plus package, be sure to describe the location and vibe of the setting. Sending me photos is pretty much necessary; written descriptions help, too. We could even hop on a quick phone call if you prefer talking out your requests as opposed to writing.

  2. Establish a timeline. When do you want/need the printed commission? Let’s work backwards from the date you’ll physically get the print. Typically, I’ll send you a pencil sketch of the commission within a week after beginning the project (step 1 above). Based on your feedback, it can take another week or two to complete the final illustration. Once the final commission is approved, consider up to a week’s turnaround time for printing and delivery. It’s best to contact me at least 2 weeks from the final date needed; even earlier is better.

  3. Think about framing and presentation. It’s best to frame artwork right away so it doesn’t end up forgotten about over time in a drawer. Select a frame that you think would be most appropriate for the occasion (whether for yourself in your space or as a gift). This will determine the paper size for printing. I typically print at 5x7” or 8x10” for standard frame sizes. Standard printing is included, but if you want a high quality giclee print (archival ink on cotton rag paper) that’s an additional fee (at least $50). Some artwork should really use a giclee print so the colors come out just right; we can discuss this further.

  4. Payment. I require 50% up front of the total cost to begin the project. This is non-refundable. I will only release the final files to you and the printer once I have received payment in full. I’m able to receive payments via PayPal, Venmo, and the Cash app, or I can email you an invoice* to pay by credit card. (*Note that invoicing will automatically incur a NY sales tax fee of 8.875%.)

  5. Enjoy! You’ll receive a digital file of the illustration in addition to the physical print of the artwork. Share your commission on social media. Get mad props. Be known as the best gift-giver ever. Or just think about how cool it is that you commissioned a truly unique artwork. Go you!
