What are the steps involved in a commission?
1) Pay on the commission page. If you have any concerns feel free to contact me first.
2) Email me (dacpublishing (at) gmail.com) a photo that you would like me to use as reference for the drawing. It is important to have a very good quality photo where I can clearly see the details of the car. You can send a few photos if you want my input. Sometimes I ask for extra photos to get a sense of color.
3) I will send you a jpg (digital photo) via email, of the artwork, and you can request changes if needed.
4) After we agree that the artwork is complete I will send the print or I will order the fabric and start the quilting phase. Once the artwork has been approved and prints or fabric have been ordered no more changes can be made.
How long will it take?
Cars take about one week to draw. I will start commissions in the order that they come in. Sometimes I have several commissions in line so it could be a few weeks or months before yours is started (depending on how booked I am). The prints take 1-2 weeks to order and arrive. Art quilts will take at least on month. Please contact me for scheduling questions.
What if I don't like the artwork?
Before you purchase a commission it is a good idea to look at my other work. Make sure you like my style of drawing and the playful colors and patterns I use. While my work is proportionally accurate the representations are also highly stylized and often colorful. If you love my style then I am confident that you will love your custom piece. I will email you an image of the artwork before printing it, and if you have concerns we can address them. Making small tweaks to the artwork is no problem.
How do you create your artwork?
I created my own technique for designing repeating patterns and saving them. With a stylus pen, I hand draw the image using my saved patterns as the "paint". I use the photo you send me as a reference, but the photo is not in the final work of art- this is not a "Photoshopped" picture.
Which kind of print should I order?
The prints on metal are ready to hang, so you don't have to purchase a frame. The metal has a very modern look and is quite stunning. It has a flush mount frame- dark pewter edges. If you are looking for a very modern, contemporary look this is a great choice.
The metallic paper prints have a beautiful shine and when matted and framed have a more traditional look.
The art quilts add a soft touch to the room. The stitching gives the piece texture and dimension which is very lovely.
Can I have a high resolution file and print my own prints, mugs, cards, etc?
At your request I can upload the artwork to Redbubble a print on demand company and you will be about to purchase t-shirts, mugs, clocks, etc… featuring your custom artwork.
I do not sell my copyright on my artwork, but if you are a company interested in a licencing deal we can discuss that too.
Will you draw my house, boat, office building, or something else?
Yes, probably... I would be happy to look at your reference photo and let you know if it is something I can do.
