What exactly is a commission?
A commission is basically this: You hire Grant to draw a character and then he mails the finished drawing to you. It can be any character -- your favorite superhero, movie villain, Star Wars character, etc.; it's completely up to you. Grant uses blue illustration pencil, black brush pen, Prismacolor markers, and occasionally Sharpies, and creates your masterpiece on a sturdy sheet of white Bristol Board.

What is the turn-around time on commissions?
Right now the turn-around time is about three to four months. If you want your commission done sooner than that, there's a "Double Pay" rush charge option. What this means is you pay double the regular charge, and your commission will be done in one month or less. Please email Grant regarding all rush jobs and inquiries.

Digital Coloring Option:

If you would prefer to have your character(s) colored in Photoshop (ie. "digitally colored"), you have that option as well. Grant currently does not have access to a large scanner, so the original drawing size will be 8.5"x11" (or if you have more than one character, each character will be drawn on a separate sheet, then assembled digitally if need be). If you choose digital coloring, the original black & white drawing(s) will be mailed to you, along with a high-quality print of the color version, plus a disk with the final high-resolution (350 dpi) art file.

Digitally Colored Artwork - 1 character: $200 (add $150 for each additional character in image)
Digitally colored commissions do not include detailed backgrounds -- only flat colors or mist-type effects. If you're looking for something more detailed, scroll to the bottom of this page for more info.

You can pay with Paypal, check, or money order (do not send cash). Payment must be made in full before your commission is started. When the piece is completed, the artwork will be mailed to you in a sturdy, protective envelope. If you would also like a small, digital snapshot of the final piece or a scan/JPEG, that usually isn't a problem.
