money can be exchanged for goods and services
hi all! i’ve been doing commissions for a few years now, and i’ve learned that i prefer to take a collaborative approach with their clients to ensure the final product feels perfect. what this looks like practically is a lot of back and forth discussion before, during, and after the commission has been completed. i love to draft several options, play around with color palettes, and just general make sure that the final piece is not just good, but great.
i take clients on a limited basis, typically only one or two per month. please use the form below to inquire about availability and potential new products. accessibility is important to me, so i do work on a sliding scale to accommodate a variety of budgets. i will go into more details below.
after you have submitted the above form, the general workflow will look something like this:
we will communicate over email to determine price, exchange reference pictures, and hammer out any necessary details
a non-refundable deposit equivalent to half the total cost is collected and sketches/color roughs are drafted up and discussed over email
once finished, remaining payment is collected and works are delivered either in person (if local to Seattle) or via USPS priority mail
tips are always appreciated, but definitely not an expectation, and you are always welcome to show your appreciation with a non-monetary tip (a sweet letter, snacks, cute doo-dads, etc) !
you are always free to post copies of the image wherever you like - after all, it’s yours! i work purely by word of mouth, so i always appreciate being credited alongside your finished piece whenever possible
a note on pricing - i tend to work on a sliding scale of about $10-25/hour. please let me know ahead of time if you have any hard financial limitations, and i will keep that in mind as i work on drafts and scale. the above is rather vague, so in more practical terms, here are some estimates of commonly requested commissions:
solo bust $40-100 couples bust $75-150 solo full body $75-150 background/props $varies
