How do I reach out to you about custom work?
If you have a request for a custom piece of art, a design, or an illustration for a tattoo send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will evaluate the work and time involved and give you a quote if I am interested. I do not always respond to a request for custom work if I am not interested in taking the job or if I am too busy at the time. I try to respond to everything but please do not be offended if I don't. Sometimes the request does not fit my style or I am just busy and not taking custom orders at the moment.
How much does it cost?
I charge for custom work based on the size and complexity of the artwork. I charge at a rate of $75/hour plus materials cost if applicable. I require a deposit of half of the total amount and a signed contract before I begin any work.
What custom work do you create?
Watercolor art, ink drawings, pet portraits, landscapes.
What I really love to create for people are meaningful scenes from nature. If you have a photo from a place that you traveled to or a place that means a lot to you that you would like to see captured in a painting or drawing hit me up, I would love to make that happen for you!
A note on tattoo designs: I have created illustrations to be given to a tattoo artist but I am not a tattoo artist myself. So if you would like a tattoo design from me keep in mind that I will create for you an illustration which you can then take to your tattoo artist, but I do not know what may go into placement on the body, that is for your tattoo artist to figure out.
Here are some examples of things I've created for people.
This is a tattoo design that I created for someone who had traveled all around the USA in an RV. This was an awesome piece to create, I really had fun with it. He gave me a bunch of pictures of places he had gone and a loose description of what he wanted. I created sketches for him to choose from and we worked from there. I pride myself on being very communicative with my clients, I want to make sure you are happy and feel involved in the process of creating your custom piece so you can expect several emails from me throughout the process, especially if it is complex.
This is a simple tattoo design that I created for a friend.
This is a watercolor pet portrait that I created for a client.
This is a drawing I did for a local business, Honey Bee Bakery
I illustrated this design for Daisy Country. A store dedicated to memorabilia for Catherine Bach/Daisy Duke.
