Personalised illustrations & artwork

Q. How long will it take for my personalised illustration and/or artwork to be created?

A. All illustrations are handmade to order just for you and every piece will vary in timescale depending on its complexity. I do aim to complete within 10-14 working days.   If you are in a hurry for a personalised illustration please contact me and I will see what I can do.

Q. What changes can I make?      

A. I want you to be ecstatic, delighted and excited when you see the final work so I will try and keep you briefed throughout the process.  Most clients are happy with a few photos of sketches at the initial design stage, and then a few more as the piece progresses.  Alterations will affect the timescale of the piece being completed, so it is important to make changes at the initial sketching stage.  I cannot make changes to the design after this stage.
