"I recently commissioned Clive to create a rendering of my Corvette. From the beginning to the end, the process with Clive was convenient, professional and enjoyable. I am very pleased with the final result, and was impressed with how well it was packaged for mailing. Thanks, Clive!"

"Clive is top notch & 1st class! He is so patient and so detail oriented that he wants you, the customer to be totally happy with your commissioned artwork. We had him do our 82 Collectors Edition Corvette and my brothers BMW. Beautiful, tremendous looking pieces of work. Highly recommend!"

 Jan Cechak, United States  


“Fantastic experience! Artwork is even better than we expected. Everything went exactly as Clive said it would. Had some copies made for my son, our man cave and the gentleman that did the paint and body work. We have some other commissions we are considering. Quality is outstanding!!”

"A true automotive artist who prides himself on exceptional customer service and attention to detail. After explaining exactly what I wanted to Clive, he went above and beyond my expectations for this commission and I am totally blown away with the results. Throughout the process, Clive carefully listened to my requests and I found his advice to be extremely informative in order to achieve a result in which I am 100% happy with. Thank you, Clive. I recommend your services to all and shall certainly be back for more should I ever feel the need to have another piece of beautiful automotive artwork commissioned by yourself."

Australia car art commissions reviews

"Brilliant artwork of our Mustang combined with fantastic customer service. Clive kept us included and updated through every part of the process. A unique memorabilia item of your car to treasure forever. Highly recommended!" 

David Anderson, Australia


"The Cartist does not always work with JDMs but when he does, it's incredible! He did my partner's R34 justice with great attention to detail and he loved his gift. I asked for a drawing of the car with Japanese architecture and cherry blossoms - Clive did his own research and came back to me with a great idea. The process was so easy regardless of me being all the way in Australia. Clive also kept me updated on the process and how long to go throughout, including showing me a draft sketch to approve before beginning the final piece. The drawing is exactly what I envisioned for this gift and I could not have possibly chosen anyone better to help me bring it to life. Now, I can't wait to get my dream JDM and have Clive draw it for me!"

Daniella Nissan, Australia


"I had Clive commission an art piece on my car. The experience was delightful the whole process from quote to finish product. His response to emails were prompt and informative. I would highly recommend The Cartist to anyone wanting to get some artwork of their pride and joy!"

Dustin Sterling, Australia

  "Clive did a very good job of my Porsche 911 GT3 RS.  He is also very professional to deal with.  Great communication made the process very easy.  I couldn't wait to get it in the mail so that I could have it framed and put in my office.  Shipping was fast and efficient and the artwork turned out to be absolutely incredible!"
