I love working with people to create the art of their dreams. Every commission is handled with the same respect, regardless of the content. By providing a revision stage, I never leave you hanging.

Peace of Mind

I strive to make my commission process as transparent as possible. My queue is completely public, with work in progress shots updated weekdaily. I also send out a weekly email to every current client with updates on my progress.

I value each and every comment on my work and the commission experience, whether positive or negative.  I think my work speaks for itself, but in the words of LeVar Burton “you don’t have to take my word for it!”

Fine Art

 

Fine art pieces are more free-form, so I will take more artistic liberty when it comes to specifications.
However, you will still see the sketch for approval before I begin painting or inking.

Fine art pieces take longer than regular commissions. Please expect AT LEAST a 2 month wait, regardless of my queue.

Shipping is NOT included in the price. I will contact you after completion to discuss shipping costs or at-con pick-up.

 

 

Mixed Media “Pop Out”

Price dependent on size

My favorite kind of traditional media art to do! For these, I think bones, insects, and other natural or “witchy” themes work best, but I am comfortable with a wide range of subjects including fursonas. 

Pop-out Illustrations include a frame. Most are up-cycled and chosen to fit your specific piece. Please ask if you have a frame in mind.

Pricing generally follows this math:

  • $15 per inch on the longest side of the frame
  • +$40 per detailed “pop-out” or die-cut piece
  • +$10 for each simple piece

The Deaths Head Moth example to the left is a $320 commission.

 

 

 

Graphite Illustrations

Starting at $135 for 8.5×11″

These are NOT sketches. These are fully-rendered graphite illustrations that bring your design to life in velvety-textured greyscale. Unlike prints and markers, graphite will not fade with age, so you can enjoy your art for years to come.
