It's killing you when you're asking a loved one what they want for their birthday or Christmas and they reply: "... I don't know, I don't need anything."
You don’t want to arrive empty-handed of course because a present shows that person you really care for them. You know them better than anyone else. But you also want to avoid just another soulless me-too present.
Special people deserve special gifts
Imagine the look on their loved ones face as their eyes widen and jaw drops when they receive a truly personal gift unlike anything they’ve been given before or could imagine. A gift which continues to delight and surprise as they notice the small but significant details.
When was the last time you received something personalized that wasn’t the same as a million other versions of it? A personalized artwork is celebrating someone special because special people deserve special gifts on their special days.
This is your chance to finally get a completely unique. With one of these personalized artworks, your loved friend or family member won’t be exchanging it for a refund. Every object within these artworks is specially tailored to the person. With your ideas, I incorporate all the details of their personality that make this person special to you.
Have a look at some timelapse videos I filmed while inking away on these artworks.
So many things. As many as you a can think of! Send me pictures, or write what you need, we can figure this out together!
Postage is calculated based on the shipping location entered in my contact form on this page. For a paper piece that's rolled into a sturdy postage tube the prices usually go from $7 to $80 depending on where you live in the world.
The artwork will be delivered rolled in a sturdy cardboard and safely protected with tissue paper to prevent damage from knocks in shipping.
I use a sturdy high quality paper stock that is smooth and acid free so that it won't get damaged by time. I've been able to work on wooden canvas before too, these make for an easy to hang solution, however they are more difficult to ship.
I use archival inks that are light fast, which means they won't fade in the sunlight and they are also waterfast so in the unlikely event of the work gettting damp, they wont bleed.
When I finish the drawing I roll up the artwork carefully with tissue paper and pack it into a sturdy postage tube that protects all the edges during transit. I will give you a Tracking Number for you to follow along once shipped.
This is something that I can't guarantee however I truly believe that my process of questions in the early stages will get me very close to your vision for how the piece is going to look. I use photoshop to give you an idea of the overall look before I start inking details onto the artwork, this way we can make changes to the design and agree on how amazing it will be.
I have art prints over in my store There are other animals that I've worked on in the past and all sorts of other fun creative gifts to suit any occasion.
We can definitely orgainze for me to do that for you.
I work this out on a case by case basis. We can discuss this further before we jump in on the project.
I take a 50% upfront deposit, which books your job into my calendar. Once the deposit is received I am able to start working on this and prepare the initial sketches for your design.
