Frequently (and Occasionally) Asked Questions

❧ SALES & COMMISSIONS:

 

Do you accept commercial commissions?
(Meaning work to be printed, reproduced, and/or distributed in any way).
The answer depends on the work itself:
‘YES!’- If it’s for Susanna Clark (Strange & Norrell), Lovecraft, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, or anything Tolkien (at all).
‘Probably yes, time permitting’ – if the work is based on mythology, fantasy, folk lore, or fairy tales, and is in-keeping with my way of working.
But probably no if it’s illustrations wanted for your new fantasy story / game / idea done for free or just ‘exposure’ (unless you already have a massive following, and I will check. :p)

 

Do you accept private commissions?
Due to a lack of time the answer is usually no, sorry, unless the thing you want is the sort of thing I’d really love/plan to draw anyway. If you think that may be the case, contact me.

 

Will you work on my sketch card set?
Sketch cards no, but possibly basecard art, if the theme is compatible with my portfolio. If you think that’s the case then get in touch.

 

Where can I buy your work?
At a crossroads, at midnight, during a full moon. Bring chocolate and a broadsword.
If you want original works, the best place is my art page on Facebook where I periodically hold small sales of work, and where I post finished pieces first – a lot of which is up for grabs to the first person who sends me a message for it.
I have prints (and other printed things) available through my shops on RedBubble, TeePublic, and Society6. RedBubble has the largest variety of my work at the moment, but TeePublic has a few things unavailable anywhere else.
If you see my printed work being sold anywhere else, please let me know. Not all places have permission.
I also have an Etsy shop for gilded and hand-finished prints, but it’s presently on hiatus while I decide if I still like Etsy.

 

❧ USE OF ARTWORK

 

Can I use your images for a commercial project?
Some of my original (non-licensed) artwork may be useable, please contact me with an outline of what you’re looking for and its end use, and I’ll give you a more definite answer and a quote as soon as possible.

 

Can I use your images for a fan / charity / personal / other non-profit project?
Possibly, if it’s in good taste, though the licensed work may not be useable (like Topps Star Wars stuff for example). Please email me with some details of what you wanted and why, so I can give you a definitive answer.

 

Can I post your pictures on my website / Flickr / Tumblr / Pinterest, (etc.)
As long as the image is unaltered, and is credited to me, then absolutely. :) A link to the website would be very kind.

 

❧ ARTISTIC PROCESS

 

How do you make your art?
All my work is done by hand, from scratch. I work on the entire thing in layers, leaving the important details for the very end, which means my work-in-progress pics often look like potato monster mole people. (More monster mole people work in progress pics here.)
I realise it’s becoming more common for people to draw/paint over computer prints (and to not always be entirely open about it), but no printers were harmed in the production of my work.
