Wow, it has been a whirlwind of ups and downs these last few months. I started chiropractic care and finally am pain free, though it has been slow at first. Now I am finally able to get back into workouts, which have begun to ease my anxiety problems and depression again. I can't even imagine what it would be like to have to live with pain everyday for the rest of my life. Two years was horrendous and made living and working extremely difficult. My heart goes out to any of you who live with chronic pain, it is truly a terrible burden. ):
Finally boxing again and working my butt off and it feels so great. I am finally enjoying my life again and not secluding myself like I had been. If I am not boxing, I am going out to hike and train for a trek through part of the Appalachian trail and a half marathon next year (want to train for a full at some point too). I even went to a figure drawing session recently to get myself out of my comfort zone and try to deal with my social anxiety!
Hopefully you have all been well too! How have you been spending your summers (or these last few weeks, if you are one of my international friends)?
Enough of my current happenings though, onto commissions!
I will be offering only head shots and bust portraits for the time being, as I want to be able to get everyone's work done in a timely manner and larger pieces tend to take me quite a while and I can lack motivation with them sometimes. Also, any of the categories below can be done traditionally and mailed to you.
An * denotes traditional media pricing
Sketch: $8 | *$8
Sketch: $10 | *$10
Ink: $15 | *$20 (can include gold leaf)
B&W Painted: $20 | *$35 (with copics, ink wash or artgraf, a watercolor graphite)
Colored: $25 | *$45 (watercolor, color pencil, copics, or mixed media - I also have some high quality oil pastels, acrylics, and inks at your disposal)
I also make maps. These require a lot more one-on-one time to discuss details with the commissioner, so please contact me if you are interested.
Payment for digital pieces is due after the piece is finished. I will ask for payment before sending the finished piece. I reserve the right to edit and sell the piece if payment is not made. If something happens and payment might take you a little longer, I'd rather know this and work with you than have to chase you down. Things happen and I am not an ass, just be honest.
Traditional media goods require payment afterwards for sketches, but for all other categories I expect payment after we approve thumbnails and sketches due to the cost of my supplies (unless I have worked with you before and know you are good for it, this rule won't change).
If you purchase a traditional media piece and wish for it to be shipped to you, an extra charge will be discussed, though I try to keep shipping as low as possible. Painted pieces will all be on 9x12 arches 140lb paper, unless a different size is requests and we work out a different cost. Shipping within the US and Canada for this size runs between $4-$8 depending on where and the packaging needed. I have shipped to the Netherlands before at around $10-$12, but cannot say how much for other locations until asked.
Please inform me of any edits that need to be made to sketches for painted pieces before I begin to color, because I will not edit then. You are allowed two major edits, so please be thorough.
Please ask if you need a more specific example of something you don't currently see if my gallery.
Thank you! <3
