Commission in progress

Have a particular project in mind? From sketches to finished pieces, from pet portraits to colouring pages, I’m happy to work with you to come up with a piece that’s perfect for you!

How it Works

  • Decide what kind of commission you’d like (pet portrait? colouring page? something else?) and send me a message outlining what you have in mind. Please be sure to let me know if you have a specific deadline!
  • I’ll draw and email you a sketch. If you’re happy with it I’ll send you an invoice, and once payment is received I’ll get to work finishing your project!
  • When the work is finished I will email the image to you for approval. Once I’ll email you a high-resolution scan of the image and a lower-resolution image suitable for sharing on social media. The original drawing can be mailed to you or, if you’re local, dropped off.
  • All that’s left is to decide where your new artwork will be displayed!
