COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN!
I’m very happy to be able to offer a small number of commissions for the 2018 holiday season! Commissions take a lot of time and effort, and I put a huge amount of care into each one. As a result, I only have 3-5 slots available, so please don’t delay in contacting me to secure your spot.
Before you do, please read the commonly asked questions below, thank you!
Get In Touch!
What Subjects DO you work with?
I can create beautiful artworks featuring plants, animals, and minerals, and combinations of any of these three. The only thing I really don’t draw is people!
Will you draw my pet?
Sure! I would love to draw your pet! Please note that I am an illustrator with my own style, not a replicator of photographs. This means my drawings will beautifully convey the spirit and personality of your pet, not a pixel-perfect rendering of the reference image.
Can you design my tattoo?
In a word, no. Tattoo artists are talented artists in their own right, and generally, they prefer to design their own artwork. They can take into account a lot of things I have no expertise with, including how colouring/inking works, how pieces will fit with your body, and more. Support your tattoo artist and pay them to create art for you!
What types of commissions do you offer?
A digital commission is an artwork created digitally using a drawing tablet and digital art software. Digital commissions tend to be much faster to create. They are available in size A5, A4, and A3. The larger the size, the more work and detail is required.
Digital commissions are less expensive than traditional commissions, and are delivered as a hi-res, print-ready file. You may only use commissioned artwork for private use.
A traditional commission is a handdrawn and painted watercolour and/or ink artwork. I use archival paints, inks, and the finest archival watercolour block to create my works. When completed, they are carefully packed in a board-backed archival, acid-free sleeve and shipped in a board-backed envelope direct to you, anywhere in the world. Shipping is included in the commission price.
I offer size A5 and A4 traditional artworks. An A5 artwork takes up to 10 hours to create, an A4 artwork can take up to 20 hours. As a result, I do charge a higher price for my time on these artworks. Please take this into account when budgeting for your custom art piece.
You may only use commissioned artwork for private use, commercial interests may visit peppercurry.com to chat re: illustration work.
How Much Is My Commission Going To Cost?
There are a lot of factors that go into determining the cost of an artwork. Size, medium, digital/traditional, number of elements/detail required, etc. all factor into it.
Colour digital artworks start around $150NZD + GST for an A5, full colour.
Colour traditional artworks start around $350NZD + GST for an A5, full colour.
