Not quite yet! But hopefully soon. I need to work at getting a clean plate, so to speak, as I still have two contest prizes, and a large commission I need to finish before I open up new slots. Not to mention, I still need to piece together revised pricing guidelines, commission forms, etc. to make this process a bit more organized.
So recently I've been doing a lot of freelance work for a local studio specializing in artistic fabrication for museums, nature centers, installations, etc. and that took every bit of my time for the last 4 months. BUT. We ran out of work to do, so now I'm sitting at home, twiddling my thumbs between hacking at the to-do list and hacking at weeds in my garden. SO. Once that list is gone and everything's tied up, I'd like to have a second go at commissions, and to be more organized about it!
I'm also considering offering some new options outside of my standard traditional media (pencil, ink, watercolor, acrylic) and possibly sell some scratchboard or woodburning commission slots. Also, some gouache mini-vignettes/busts, etc. would be super fun for playing with color and a slightly different style. The scratchboard would likely be the most expensive option, given the tedious nature (and the fact that edits can be a little tricky to fix with ink, sometimes) but woodburning (with or without additional mixed media) might be fairly affordable. Most of it depends on the amount of detail one wants. Again, you'll hear more if there's enough interest, and once I put together a pricing guide.
I also feel like I need to add a list of what I will not or would rather not draw. This is where I sense I might hurt some feelings, but since there are so many artists who specialize in said subjects, one could just commission another artist. If someone insists I draw said subject, they will be presented with an additional fee they must agree to. The one exception to this is if you have previously discussed the subject of your commission with me and gained approval.
Most of you already know what I draw, for the most part. Newcomers can ask for a list of subjects I'd rather not draw, but one shouldn't take a potential rejection personally. Not everything can be my cup of tea! If you want me to post a list somewhere, feel free to say so! Any and all questions are welcome.
