THE COMMISSION PROCESS AND STEPS
All commissions are processed via the commission form or via email. Emailed requests should still answer all the questions in the form.
Using the information you provide, a price quote is calculated and sent to you.
Email correspondence, calls, or any preferred communication will follow, to ensure mutual understanding of your request. Depending on the nature of the commission, thumbnail sketches, a vision board, or concept write-up may be sent and discussed.
A tentative date of issue, a Payment Plan* and any special terms (e.g royalties or licensing) are agreed upon and a final invoice is generated to initiate the transaction.
Your artwork is created and preview images are sent to you for review. One to two (1 - 2) revisions may be permitted/included but further revisions are negotiable at a cost.
The final artwork is track shipped to your address (if physical), emailed to you (if digital), or arrangeable for pick up by you or an authorized person. Original paintings will NOT include frames. The final product will include a Certificate of Authenticity (physical or digital), outlining any special terms if applicable.
Art prints are reproductions of an artwork to be distinguished from 'originals' which are the primary works handmade by the Artist. Art prints are readily available via my online store. All prints are currently produced and managed by Society6 who are responsible for shipping clients items.
Limited Edition prints are art prints which have a set number produced, signed, and numbered directly by me. Once they are sold out, they will not be sold again, deeming their exclusivity and value. These come on offer occasionally but can be requested/inquired about via email. These prints are not listed on the Society6 online store.
