- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
If you have a budget and let me know, I can work to your budget within reason. We all need to get paid for the work we do as well as the skill involved.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When working with a new customers, I like to have a conversation about what they need and expect. I want to make sure we are on the same page. We work out a fee and I ask for one third down payment. After a downpayment I will create the agreed upon number of sketches, usually one to three. The client picks a sketch and gives any further direction. I begin the final work. Once the work is partially done, I show the progress of work and allow for input from the client. Once the progress is accepted by the client, they pay the second third. When the piece is done I provide a low resolution image and final payment made. After final payment the files or final work is provided to the client.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Graduated from the University of Michigan School of Art. I received a BFA in Scientific Illustration and Sculpture. I have worked in computer graphics and on my own painting since graduating in 1998.
