- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is $150/hr. for whatever BLACK AND WHITE style you want. I draw on either 8.5x11" or 11x17" paper and always put your drawing in a nice protective plastic sleeve. COLOR is $175/hr. I prefer not to draw with little bodies.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to communicate via email so we have everything in writing and we can work out all the details. Once I get all their information, I'll make up a contract between us and ask for a small deposit to hold their date. Once the contract is signed and the deposit received, it's a go! I try to show up about 1/2 hour early to set up and make sure all the details are set. Then I draw! I usually draw for 2 hours straight before I take a break.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a BA degree in Art from the University of California, Davis, and I've taken both PORTRAIT & CARICATURE classes in the past. The best thing I do is go to a caricature convention where we can draw uninhibited and get great tips from other artists. I also got my start working at DISNEYLAND, so that was a great boost.
