commissions

Client experience is always first! To begin the process, or to simply ask questions, please contact me directly by email at skip@inc2ink.com. I appreciate and respond to all inquiries; I'll listen to your needs, explain what I need to get started, and walk you through my creative process, pricing, and print(s) or framing options. Please be advised, there is often a commissions queue. Your 'work' will fall into the queue.  From there, depending on size chosen, drawings can take 2-6 weeks, not including print(s) or framing options. Planning ahead, especially well before the holidays, is highly recommended to meet specific gifting or business deadlines. 

Details about each original home portrait that I create:

  • Detailed drawing of home, cabin, or other architectural landmarks & landscaping in black India ink..  Night or Day!!

  • Drawn on acid-free, pH neutral archival "Fabriano Artistico" cold press 90lb 100% cotton watercolor paper.

  • Drawn with precise technical pens (0.13mm - 0.35mm+). May include toning using ink/water wash, or grayscale watercolor(s) (painted) to add value and contrast.  Option to imbed hidden names, dates, or other sentiments.

Details about the commission process:

  • Custom sizes are available on request. Custom pricing will be quoted at time of such request.  It's your decision to move forward.

  • For commercial work or larger projects, a commission "Work" contract is recommended.  This protects both parties.

  • A 'photo visit' is available within Twin Cities Metro area only ($75 fee).  I can also help you take your own.  No fees apply

  • For all original drawings, 30% non-refundable down payment is required. This payment ensures a place in the queue, and covers initial labor (portrait layout & sketch) and materials costs. Full balance, including applicable taxes and shipping costs, due upon completion of work.

  • Pick-up of completed work is available in Plymouth, MN. I can also ship to your location (applicable UPS or FED ex fees apply).

  • High-resolution (600 dpi) digital images of original artworks are provided on request at no additional charge.

  • FRAMING: All artwork consists of the original finished drawing only. Professional outside framing is available at competitive pricing, plus a $50 handling fee. This can be discussed at anytime during the commission process. Generally, the turn-around for a framer is 3-4 weeks and should be considered incremental time added to any artwork deadline you may have.
