2.  Payment

I will schedule your commissioned drawing and start it as soon as possible. Payment must be made before I start the drawing.

PayPal is the preferred payment method for all international customers.  Prices are quoted in US Dollars.  Prices in different currencies will be calculated upon payment through PayPal.

 

3.  Drawing

The drawing process takes one to two weeks. I will stay in touch when working on your drawing and send you pictures when completed.

Mediums:

I use a variety of high quality markers, pens and pencils to achieve the highest possible level of detail in my drawings. These include Copic markers and multiliners, Faber-Castell, Derwent and Prismacolor pencils.

Paper:  

My drawings are made on high quality, ultra-white, smooth paper, made by Strathmore. This paper is exclusively made for the markers I use, to give very vibrant and deep colours. The paper weight of 300gsm gives the drawing a premium look and feel.

Fixative:  

After a drawing is completed, I spray it with several light layers of high quality fine art fixative to protect the drawing from dusting, smudging and fading.

 

4.  Shipping

When the drawing is finished and you are satisfied with the end result, I will ship the drawing to you!

All my drawings are professionally prepared and packaged in sturdy postal tubes. The tubes give the artwork maximum protection and ensures it arrives at its final destination in perfect condition.

Shipping comes with full online track & trace, delivery within 3 – 4 business days depending upon destination and customs.
