Custom illustrations are personalized drawings made for you. People have requested them for anniversary gifts, wedding invitations, family additions—it can be for any reason really :) Here you'll find a gallery of examples along with an overview of process & pricing. You can submit requests through the contact form.

    To give you some ideas, here are just a few examples of the many custom drawings I've done :)

    1. Idea. First I make sure I understand what you're looking for. Whether you want a completely new drawing or a customized version of an existing drawing, I get a sense of the mood you'd like to convey and collect any reference photos you'd like to share. We also determine details such as dimensions.
    2. Sketch. I provide a sketch version for you to review overall layout and composition. For completely new drawings, I'll typically provide at least two different directions for you to choose from. 
    3. Color. With the sketch approved, I'll move on to color and show you a version about 70% completed to make sure you like the overall color scheme and style direction.
    4. Finish. Your custom drawing is now done! I'll mail you a high-quality print and also send web-and print-friendly digital versions for your personal use.




    Individual Portraits/Drawings

    The Places We'll Go and Home Is drawings start at $200-250 and completely custom drawings generally start at $350-450. They generally stay close to that estimate unless you are looking for a lot of extra details or elaborate drawings. 

    Wedding Illustrations

    Similar pricing to the above, plus tiered pricing package for any additional small illustrations and/or graphic design. In total, packages are usually $400-$600.

    Gift Cards

    Gift cards are available if you would like to give a custom drawing to someone but aren't sure what they'd like. After you present them with the gift (I will provide you with a personalized e-card, which you are also welcome to print), I will work with them directly.



    If you're ready to put in a request or would like more info, just send in a message with the contact form  below :) Drawings typically take 2-3 weeks to finish. Because my schedule fills up, it's best to put in the request at least 2-3 months in advance of when you need it by.

    Thank you
