Custom Requests

I would absolutely LOVE to create a beautiful, custom piece for you!

 

To do so, I will need the following:

 

​​​

1. A photo of your subject

This can be a musician, a comedian, your grandma, your cat,a wedding photo, etc. I would prefer a higher quality image that is sharp and has good lighting but I can definitely do my best to work with what you have. Just send it so we can chat about it and work out exactly what you're looking for.

2. A list of your content

This includes songs, quotes, messages, monologues, etc. I just need to know what it is that you would like me to use to create the image. For a 16x20" piece, I generally need 5-7 songs or content of comparable length to create the piece. However, this is your piece - if you would like me to repeat less content, I can certainly do that.

3. Preferred Size & Colors

My standard size is 16"x20" but I can certainly do larger upon request. Smaller sizes generally diminish detail but I can certainly work with you to bring your vision to fruition.

4. Delivery Method

If you are local (residing in Annapolis or within 10 miles) or will be traveling to Annapolis, I would be happy to negotiate a place to personally deliver your piece. However, I am also certainly willing to ship the piece to your location. 

Shipping cost will be calculated and discussed upon pricing.

5. Deposit

My required, non-refundable deposit is 50% of the determined price. This enables me to gather your materials and insures the time that it takes to create the piece including all of the preparation work to turn your photo into a handwritten piece on canvas. I prefer payment via Venmo but may consider cash, check or alternative payment methods upon request.

After receipt of deposit...

Once we have solidified all of the above, I will generate a vector from the image provided and will send this to you via email. This vectored image will give you an idea  of what your piece will look like based on color.

When the vector has been approved, I will get to work on your piece! I generally require 8 to 10 weeks to complete a 16x20" grayscale lyric piece. Larger pieces and pieces that require color may take longer. Timing also depends on my current  production list. I will discuss estimated time frames for completion with you during consultation for your piece. I may accept completion by a certain date when possible.  Feel free to ask if you have a specific date in mind and I will do my best to accomodate. 

Once your piece is complete, I will contact you via email with a photo of the completed piece. At this point, I will add wire to the back of your piece for hanging and will prepare it for delivery. And then your piece will be delivered/shipped!
