Works By Commission

My favorite way to work is to sit down over a hot drink and talk a little about what aspects of my art catch your eye, then what other things interest you, and come up with some ideas and themes. From there I go home and sketch and think and sketch some more and when i have something or things i like, I send off photos from my notebook. Maybe its rough ideas, or sketches done around a layout, but a view into my process and a chance to approve of the direction things are going or say “lets try something else”.  Once we have a solid sketch that you have approved I will continue on to the final cut. Then its mounted and framed and delivered.  Unless I have some other major commitment, the process should be completed in under a month (but can certainly be much speedier if needed for a gift or special occasion). Prices vary by size, but I try to keep them accessible as I would rather do a commission piece than a blind transaction through a gallery if given my choice.  Working together to create something and getting to see the path that leads to the final piece makes for a richer experience and more personal artwork.

This process can be used to collaborate on all manner of art beyond framed pieces. Lately ive worked on images for t-shirts, business logos, weddings,websites, and posters for a wide range of individuals and groups.  I love to get art out in new ways and into new places, so dont hesitate to pose a crazy idea.

If you want to buy something off-the-shelf, take a peek at my etsy store, blackberry and barnacle, where you will find my new book and any print runs or merchandise that I have in stock.
