Email me a well-focused, high-quality digital photo and I will transform it into a realistic, freehand 9 x 12" (23 x 30.5cm) black-and-white pencil portrait. High contrast shots that focus on the subject's face provide the best results. Unless otherwise requested, I fill in the background with a soft, dark shade so that your subject will stand out and not become lost among background details. Because I want you to be completely satisfied with the finished piece, I will communicate with you throughout the process and send you progress photos upon request.

General info:
Completion time varies depending on my current schedule, my commission load, and the picture you'd like me to draw (more subjects = more time). The drawing may take anywhere from two to eight weeks to complete. I ask that you pay 50% upon placing your order, then 50% + shipping once you receive your portrait.

The materials:
I use 9 x 12" (23 x 30.5cm) acid-free white drawing paper for my portraits. A combination of high-quality drawing pencils and standard mechanical pencils helps me produce a wide range of shading and detail so that the portraits are as realistic as possible. Once the picture is complete, I seal it with a spray-on, clear coat fixative to protect it from smudging.

All amounts are in U.S. dollars. Portraits start at $100. Each additional subject is $10 (so a couples portrait, for example, would be $110). This does not include shipping costs. If you want your portrait to be bigger or smaller than my standard 9 x 12", please let me know and I will adjust the price accordingly.

The shipping cost includes materials, postage, and insurance. To protect the drawing, I put it in a folder, enclose the folder in cardboard, and place it in a bubble envelope. I am not responsible for any damage incurred during shipping.

*Special Deal*: Return customers receive a 10% discount on their next portrait (or one free additional subject)!
