- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
It will vary greatly between projects since every project is unique. Personal use paintings will start at $200 for a 5"x7" while commercial work will start at $350 with rights and usages discussed. An example price for a personal painting 16"x 20"with one figure and plain background is $1000
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Once a customer explains what they need, I will do my best to figure out what size and medium will work best for their project. Once we have details nailed down, a contract is drafted up outlining what the project is and what it will be used for. Every customer gets a week's worth of thumbnails or small sketched that they can pick from for the final image. You will get periodic updates on the painting/ project and can suggest changes (up to 2 for free) so we can work together to make the best possible piece.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a degree in fine art with a concentration in painting and focused on Illustration during my school career. I attended the Illustration Academy in Kansas City and was taught by some of the best modern illustrators around. I have been freelancing for 6 years and help run an organization for artists to help them learn the basics of freelancing online.
