THE PROCESS

The process of commissioning your own artwork takes a few simple steps.

Contact > Payment > Drawing > Shipping

 

 

1.  Contact

Send me a message to info@thecartist.com or contact me via social media about the car you want to have drawn. We can then discuss the details and anything that you might want to include in your artwork such as logo's, backgrounds, etc.  Once you are happy with everything, the next step would be for you to email me a high resolution digital photo of the subject and let me know which paper size you would like the artwork to be.

 

There are two paper sizes to choose from: 

Please contact me if you require a custom paper size for your artwork

12.6 x 18.9 in

Pricing Structure:

Each drawing takes between 10 - 20 hours to create and is made with high quality materials.  The time it takes to complete a drawing depends on the paper size.  The price is determined by two factors (1) the paper size and (2) the amount of materials used.

 

The following is included with your artwork: 

  •   Shipping & Delivery Worldwide
  •   Preliminary/Ideation Sketches
  •   Certificate of Authenticity
  •   Complimentary Gift*

 

* Your complimentary gift consists of a handy three-in-one device for your Desktop / Laptop / Tablet / Smartphone! 

 

2.  Payment

I will send you a formal invoice stating all the details of the artwork - payment must be made before I start the drawing. Once payment is received I will schedule your commissioned drawing and start it as soon as possible.

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 entire commission process should take roughly 1 - 2 weeks to complete, depending on the number of commissions that I have.  I will be 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 acid-free 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 which safeguards 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 and trace.  Delivery within 2 – 4 business days depending upon destination and customs.
