"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!!"

Robert Engel, United States


"Clive was incredible! The art is truly amazing, and he is such a joy to work with. Even though we are across the world from each other physically, Clive was so on top of messages and communication that the distance never made a difference. Even the shipping was quick! I absolutely recommend Clive to anyone looking for incredible and personal art. A wonderful artist and person. Thanks again!"

Jennifer McCormick, United States


"Clive has completed 3 artworks for me. The quality of his work is impeccably accurate to every detail. His process is also seamless and he is such a pleasure to deal with. If I ever have the need for another artist rendering I will most definitely use him."

Paul Durham, United States


"Clive's attention to detail is phenomenal. I recently commissioned two drawings, one of my relative's motorcycles with a beautiful landscape in the background, and another relative's favorite car. The vivid coloring and life-like quality blew me away when I first saw them digitally, even more so when I pulled them out of the *very* safely packaged tube. These are wonderful, lively, and sure to make the people I'm gifting them to very happy. Thanks so much, Clive!"

Stephen Oehler, United States

“Clive has done a few pencil sketches of family members for us and they take pride of place in our home. He is a talented artist.”

Peter & Vivienne Stevens, South Africa


"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
