Thank you for your interest in my work.
Here is some general information regarding procedures and prices.

Each request for artwork is unique, and therefore it is impossible for me to
accept a
project or supply a price estimate
without speaking to you via telephone or email concerning these details.

For Caricature-Portraits, I work from one good, clear, recent photo of the subject
with the face itself being at least one inch tall. If you include additional photos,
you must specify the one from which I should work to render the face.
I also accept high-definition scans and digital photos sent over the internet,
which saves time and a stamp.
It should be a photo that truly captures the person's look and personality.
If you are happy with the photo, you will be happy with the portrait.

A photo that requires major revisions would not be suitable. Adding or removing
a large amount of weight, age, hair, beard, mustache, eyeglasses, hats, etc.
would jeopardize achieving a good likeness.

The details of the face in the photo should be crisp and clear. Simply enlarging a
blurry photo doesn't make it more clear, it just makes a larger blurry photo!

Along with the photo you would supply the person's eye and hair color and a list of
background information such as jobs, hobbies, habits, funny or memorable events, likes, dislikes, favorite sports teams, books and movies, etc., etc.

Reference material for anything specific (logos, pets, family members, homes,
mementos, cars, etc.) must be supplied.

You may specify the picture's overall layout or leave it up to me.

To "complete the package" I offer matting and framing at very reasonable prices.

Once all the required information is received, allow approx. 3-4 weeks for delivery,
although I usually can accommodate rush orders when necessary.

All photos and reference material will be returned.

Please contact me to discuss your ideas and any of your artwork needs.
